So, for a show-stopping range of luxurious clothing and accessories, look no further than Ted Baker and ‘Get in On the Act’ this Spring.

Vibrant prints
This season, botanical prints add a flourish to both clothing and accessories with true-to-life floral prints – such as Ted’s ‘Sugar Sweet’ and ‘Oil Painting’ patterns – featuring heavily in the collection. While we first saw floral prints make an appearance last Autumn, they have been revamped with a delicate pastel colour palette for Spring.

Intoxicating colours
The new collection features subtle sorbet shades, such as lilac, pink, lemon and mint, that been paired with metallic embellishments to create an array of beautiful pieces that are decidedly feminine in their allure. Theatrical tones are also a recurring theme, with bright neon colours adorning everything from blazers to purses to ensure the wide array of bold, statement pieces for which Ted is known.

Feminine silhouettes
While this season’s tailored pieces have been modernised through texture and colour, Ted has kept silhouettes rather traditional with structured blazers and cropped styles dominating the collection. These strong silhouettes primarily feature shorter-length sleeves and are perfect for draping over the shoulder for effortless glamour. Fluid, feminine fabrics and delicate pleating also take centre stage, paving the way for an array of elegant dresses that skim the hips and move with unrivalled grace.


Ted Baker’s Menswear

Vivid Colours and Quirky Prints
For men, pink and white are the focal point of the season, conjuring up images of the quintessentially British seaside gent. Stripes, spots, geos and checks appear frequently, worn either head to toe, in the form of Ted’s marvellous suits, or as subtle detailing on lining and accessories. Shirts are decorated with statement prints, reminiscent of Turkish tiling, and tees take inspiration from world travel, with designs such as Ted’s exotic parrot print cementing themselves as firm favourites for Spring.

Thrilling threads
For Spring/Summer, suit jackets feature sophisticated adornments including distinctive tortoiseshell buttons and sleek silky linings. For a more laid-back feel,  unstructured linen blazers and lightweight chinos make up the core of Ted’s menswear collection. Harrington and bomber-style jackets continue the informal vibe, whist items such as polos and lightweight knits provide easy-to-wear cool.
