White On White

There’s nothing like a detox to rejuvenate your mood, and this season, collections have been cleansed of noisy clashing graphic prints and the saturated colour pops that punctuated fall.

Romanced by broderie anglaise and pretty filigree, designers such as Balmain, Moschino, Missoni and Fendi explored the soothing appeal of white. Looks that turned blank canvases of white into captivating works of art were seen on the spring13 runways, many revealing clean, precise origami folds of light fabrics as well as technical cottons.

If you are feeling adventurous, why not adopt a no-holds-barred approach and wear white from head to toe by mixing textured fabrics and sheer pieces to keep things interesting.

Or alternatively, wear pops of white with accessories, such as graphic modern heels, like those seen at Fendi or a white clutch, like those seen at Sportmax.
