COLOUR ME BEAUTIFUL

Thankfully there’s one thing this season that the fickle and often conflicting fashion world agrees on – and that’s colour. So even if the weather doesn’t improve, at least our summer wardrobes can be all things bright and beautiful. The other big trend to take note of is prints – we’re seeing them on everything from dresses to bags to shoes. Anglomania, Hoss Intropia and Paul Smith have all offered up heady blooms of floral prints – big and small, subtle and out-there – there’s something for everyone. To make the boldest style statement (and kill two birds with one stone) you can’t beat Diane von Furstenberg’s ultra-feminine animal print dresses in a vivid spectrum of exotic hues.

THE BEAUTIFUL GAME

World Cup fever is almost upon us and the countdown to England’s first game on the 12th of June has already begun.

FITFLOP POUR HOMME

The ‘fashion meets fitness’ phenomenon that is FitFlop is no longer Just for the girls – they’ve introduced a range of the revolutionary footwear specifically for men. New research has revealed that not only can FitFlops help you get fitter and firmer – they can actually reduce chronic lower back pain. And in case you guys out there aren’t convinced, now for the science part… the biomechanically-engineered foam and rubber components of the shoe redistribute pressure away from painful hot spots on the bottom of the feet and moves force closer to the centre of the knee, realigning the ground reaction force that travels through the body as you walk. Impressive stuff, and more importantly, far more stylish than your standard men’s sandal. Men’s FitFiop Dass’ in chocolate £45,
