Forget the world. We have plenty to look forward to this season now that the Spring-Summer collections have arrived.

Schneiders from Salzburg deservedly hits the front cover. What a beautiful image! This premium heritage brand has its pedigree in superior craftsmanship and exquisite eye-catching details. The new designs and a commitment to sourcing the best cloth are of an essence.

Rodika Zanian, always a favourite, is the ultimate in Parisian chic. Special occasion dresses in lovely prints and punchy jacquards are complimented by stylish jackets or this season’s cheekiest, soft and shot trenches. Lauren Vidal, also from Paris, with their well established mussel shell and mother of pearl palette have again delivered fizzy knits, floaty dresses and separates in crinkle and crêpe, the makings of a perfect holiday wardrobe.

Alpha Studio, for us, has become a steadfast friend. The quiet, clean and uncluttered designs contrast superbly with exciting raucous set pieces in bold fabrics and prints at a good price point. Also Italian is D’Exterior. For cool and coveted everyday tricot or the most sensational occasionwear, this is a high quality brand. Colours this Spring are in medleys of sand, chocolate and orange or the classic navy, cream with pink!
