As we transition into a new season, we spotlight the very latest trends in interior, beauty, wellness and fashion
Home Sweet Home
One of the top interior trends for spring 2022 is bringing the outside in with a focus on earthy materials. British lifestyle store Oliver Bonas’ latest home collection features a range of statement pieces made from mango wood and rattan, while its extensive collection of indoor potted plants in ceramic pots, woven baskets and seagrass planters also encompass this look and feel whilst incorporating greenery into the home, another top trend.
Extend the use of plants into your living space with natural and mink pampas grass from JOY and display it in one of its tall vases – the long feathering stems add volume and are also architectural in style, another popular look of the moment. For further organic textures, think mohair wool and merino cashmere throws from Paul Smith, velvet, cotton and silk cushions from The White Company and decorative wall hangings using the click and collect service at John Lewis from Waitrose & Partners.
Elsewhere minimalism is having a moment with clean lines and open spaces enhancing the liveability of a space – what better excuse for a spring clean? Achieve this with storage solutions – the aforementioned retailers have plenty of organisers, boxes and baskets to choose from, while Flying Tiger Copenhagen is also worthy of a special mention.
Finally, if you’re going to opt for colour in your home, Pantone has declared Very Peri the hue of the year, which features the qualities of blues with a violet-red undertone and can be incorporated into your décor and soft furnishings. Last but not least, don’t forget to scent your home; Jo Malone London has come up smelling of roses with its Special-Edition Velvet Rose & Oud Candle.
The Latest in Beauty and Skincare
When it comes to makeup, the models on the spring/summer 2022 catwalks wore minimal bases – shop at Bobbi Brown where you can select from serum, weightless, liquid-to-powder and even stick foundations. This pared-back look was seen with statement blusher or neon and metallic eyeshadows and glossy lips – and where better to try out these styles than taking a seat in M.A.C’s chair?
Meanwhile this year’s brows have a slightly softer look; get yours ship-shape by the professionals at Blink Brow Bar and while you’re in Canada Place, head to London Grace for spring nails in pastel shades.
Shorter locks and bobs are just two of the top hair trends – visit one of Canary Wharf’s trio of salons, Jon Hala, Toni&Guy and seanhanna – as is embracing your natural texture and shine. For the latter, pay a visit to Boots The Chemist for products galore such as The Hair Lab by Mark Hill Texture Hairspray and Kristin Ess Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray.
Finally for skincare, simpler beauty regimes, Vitamin C products and eco-friendly skincare are key for spring 2022; speak to the specialists at Kiehl’s, since 1851, L’Occitane, The Body Shop and Space NK.
Enhance Your Wellbeing
This spring it’s all about focusing on the inside out and creating a stronger immune system. For natural remedies, Holland & Barrett can advise on how you can supplement your diet with vitamins, as can the team at vitamin drip clinic Get A Drip.
Indeed, this year the trend is towards regenerative health that focuses on the science behind restoring, renewing and rejuvenating; learn more about stem cell treatments and more at the Regenerative Wellbeing clinic, while sk:n focuses on rejuvenation facial treatments from HydraFacials to microdermabrasion, peels to microneedling, the latter of which is a type of treatment that uses small needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin that encourages the body to create a healing response to renew the skin cells.
Not only is the colour green hitting the interior trend highs this spring but it is also traversing the runways, from shoes – like these Veronica Flats from Kate Spade New York – to accessories such as these Rectangle Frame Sunglasses from Coach and this Bletchley Tote Bag from Hobbs.
With a chill still in the air, coats and jackets are oversized and brightly coloured. Bring a pop of pink into your attire with by GANT; the shade is oh-so spring-like.
Meanwhile preppy suits are back, as are oversized trousers and jackets. For the first, the style walks the line between casual and sophisticated, and is all about crisp, clean and considered staples. A perfect example of this is this Sandro Paris Houndstooth Suit Jacket paired with the matching shorts. For the second, it’s all about comfort rather than stiff-looking formal attire. Maje has got your wardrobe sorted with this loosely-fitting floaty suit jacket and matching trousers.
The cardigan is here to stay and whether wearing over the top of a suit – head to Moss Boss or Hawkes & Curtis for the ultimate tailoring experience – or at home, you’re sure to feel comfortable and stylish. This Cardigan in Cotton and Cashmere design from BOSS is a versatile spring staple.
Have you been training at Third Space or Barry’s? What better way to show off the results than the new trend of sleeveless tops like this Men’s ‘Summer Strip’ V-Neck Sleeveless Sweater from Paul Smith.
Gone are the days of black and boring, instead runways were awash with colour and pattern. Go bold or go home with The Kooples’ Yellow Cotton Shirt with Hibiscus Print while this Custom SlimFit Logo-Floral Polo Shirt tropical top from Polo Ralph Lauren is making us think further ahead into summer.
