Whoosh that’s 2013 almost gone and its nearly two months since I sent out my newsletter. I was going to write about lamé and all things bright and beautiful but there is always such an overdose of merry twinkle and sparkle we are being urged to buy I preferred to look forward.
I have studied the catwalk collections spring summer 2014. Now I see that Pre-Fall 2014 (ie clothes for next winter that will be delivered some time in August) has unveiled this week. It seems prescient to get our eye in for the new season. To say white is trending for Summer is a bit obvious but there we are, it is. Top-to-toe white, optic laundry white, right through all the shades to burnt cream. What is new, is that this mix of whites are worn together. There are dozens of ditzy dotty frocks and weird angled geo cuts on offer. Best in show, chic, sharp tailoring. Say smart white jacket to me and up pops the snap of Mick and Bianca. That YSL jacket would do us now. The jacket on the right is Alexander McQueen and it’s pretty fantastic. Helmut Lang is always a cert for a white jacket. White trousers in crepe, wide and fluid are a must buy immediately to wear for the first dinners of the new year teamed with a black “smoking”. Shop on line www.winserlondon.com for a great pair. £295
