From the lightest white to the darkest white, this shade has not been missed on the runway for the Spring/Summer 2015 collections. With it’s simplicity and clean effect, white has been observed in almost all the fashion shows this season.
French fashion houses such as Lanvin, Hermes, and Celine have all featured this pure and soothing shade. Clean cut, yet floaty materials were seen to be paired together with this elegant colour. Minimalism was the ‘Big Boom’ for this SS15 Ready-To-Wear collections.
For instance Balenciaga used geometrical mesh cut materials to emphasise texture and transparency, while showcasing different shades of white and neutral colours. Loewe’s runway was dominated by oversized, loose and light fabrics used on high waisted trousers and tops. Light white cotton and linen combined together with leather gave this collection a modern yet realistic feel. The white craze also took over Hermes. The ‘Wrapping’ style has been effectively combined with this colour. As always uber-feminine chiffon gowns from Valentino have been featured with lace and floral details, brining the real spring/summer mood into play. Alber Elbaz, the much adored designer of the Lanvin fashion house started the show with super sleek Grecian dresses in white, black and navy. Details such as the ‘thigh slit’ and the animal print belt, took these dresses to the next level of chic. The message for us from the Fashion Houses this coming season would have to be ‘Go All White’. Fashion trends will always change, but no doubt this colour will always remain dominant in the fashion industry.
