The recent outings of the Resort 2013 collections have injected a dose of colour into the veins of our gloomy summer. Bottega Veneta gave us an array of coloured combinations, Marchesa gave us ballgowns in electric blue and pink, and Derek Lam presented the orangest pair of trousers known to man. But through this rainbow, one thing is clear. Regardless of the fact that these clothes don't drop until Autumn, white is back in a big way.
Looking through the Resort photos, I couldn't help but notice how many designers have given us white-on-white looks; white jackets layered over crisp white shirts and tailored white trousers, white blazers over white shirt dresses, and strangest of all, white shoes. Turns out Raf Simons white shoes at Jil Sander may have been a hit.
So for Resort we'll all be looking clean and crisp in our white combos. Take direction from Stella McCartney's relaxed yet tailored layering, Givenchy's structured outerwear, and Celine's accessory matching. Just make sure you don't sit on anything, keep away from people with drinks, and hold your invite to Diddy's party in hand.
