Welcome to the spring issue, where the new-season trends have arrived like a breath of fresh air. Light, pared-back and relaxed, they suggest a modern simplicity that reflects how we aspire to live now.
In fashion, look forward to a palette of muted neutrals, plain block colours and simple, graphic patterns. Our Trend Edition gives an overview of the SS13 catwalk and selects key pieces that will give your look an effortless update. We are also pleased to introduce Kin by John Lewis, an exclusive collection for men, women and children that perfectly captures the contemporary mood.
At home, the New Simplicity champions a fuss-free aesthetic that’s understated but never sparse. Discover more, where interiors columnist David Nicholls of The Telegraph makes his debut. And lastly, our interiors story provides inspiration for a serene home; in our iPad version, we show you the latest home trends of Botanist and Pioneer - both great ways to usher in a fresh spring mood.
