Coco Chanel said it best, “Women think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony.” With Spring’s sunburst of colors, it is refreshing to see many designers pay tribute to the striking elegance of minimalism through delicate white fabrications. Seen in collections by Bottega Veneta, Giambattista Valli, Valentino, and more, sheer veilings, embroideries, lace, and eyelets underwent a modern adaptation with truly artisanal results.
Now that summer is well on its way (and so is our tan!), try wearing white head-to-toe with nude pumps and a bold, new lip color. Coral looks fantastic with that summer glow and will pop beautifully against the white. Whatever your trajectory, what could be a more refreshing change for your summer wardrobe than to use the delicate white fabrics as a detox from the noisy, bright graphic prints?
