This spring and every spring, brings with it pops of colour, happy hues and dopamine inducers, always much needed after the winter winds and frozen rains.

SS22 is no different and packs a punch when it comes to all the colours of the rainbow. Expect pops of vivid brights, soft subtle pastels, an array of blues, plus a spectrum of purple, from lilac to violet, influenced by Pantone’s colour of the year ‘very peri’.
The season of new beginnings, re-emergence and reconnection with nature and self. The season full of promise, newness and life, spring always brings with it a desire to adorn ourselves with more playful uplifting tones. For some of us that means soft dusty pastels, for others a head to toe riot of colour.
Where do you sit on the clothing colour wheel? Are you a spring bloomer who is longingly lusting after Lolly’s Laundry Ulla Quilt Jacket? Or dip your toe in the water with a Bonne Maison Fluo Stripe Sock in Yellow, or do you simply transition gracefully from winter blues to spring blues in Sessun’s Velvet Park Cord Trousers and Artista Blouse, a nod to those eye-catching carpets of bluebells so synonymous with a British spring.
Transitional dressing often proves challenging, even for the more seasoned fashionistas among us, so mixing in new tones to your existing wardrobe in a subtle way, that still feels weather appropriate, is a good place to start. Bellerose have captured this perfectly with their Loud Reversible Jacket in Khaki. As have Selected Femme with their Lipsie Boxy Knit in Violet Tulip, definitely ticks the 'Very Peri' box. Personally I can’t get enough of pink whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter so I’m plumping for YMC’s lofty Jets crew in Pink. How about you?
If you prefer understated colour pops then look no further than the Nilou Sweatshirt from Bellerose. Crafted in a beautiful teddy fleece, when the cuffs are rolled back a striking contrast mesh lining is revealed. Perfect for those with a pared-back style.
Let us introduce you to the secondary 'it' colour for SS22. Some are calling it frog, others are calling it wordle green, whatever you call it, it's definitely here to stay. The brand doing it the best right now in our opinion is Bellerose, queue the Datti Knit in Frog and the Howland Broderie Shirt.
We’re just getting started with SS22 here at Maze and are so excited by the new collections from our much loved design partners who have created such beautiful edits to share with us and more importantly you. We hope you’ll agree.
