Color Story in White

Clean. Simple. Feminine. Chic. All these words describe the newest color obsession for designers...white. Many Spring 2011 collections opted for the neutrality of white that is anything but boring.
There was never a dull moment as Sarah Burton embraced white for her Spring Alexander McQueen collection. A naturalism meshed with Edwardian flair gave the collection a feminine level of drama.

Western luxe shines brightly at Ralph Lauren.
The basic foundation of white glows with metallic accents.

Texture adds further interest with lace, crotchet and embroidery-like detailing.

Clean minimalism is GAP's signature style, and it still holds true with pieces in white and tan.

Like GAP, Chloe embraced a minimalist style in her collection but also added a touch of romanticism with historically influenced lines. Silhouettes range from the full skirted dress, to body-conscious draping that is reminiscent of ballet dancers (with the added touch of slippers).

The clean minimalism of this outfit is enhanced with a pop of red ballet slippers.

This summer, with the help of collections like these, tell your story in shades of white.

Pacific Passion

It was the kiss seen around the world on Friday, April 29th. Billions of people watched as the love story of Will and Kate was cemented with the wedding of the decade. What's next? How about a dream-worthy honeymoon that matches the fairytale wedding?

A South Pacific get-away seems to be just the ticket with its warm weather, clear blue waters and skies with a dash of tropical romance that any couple, royal or not, could enjoy.

John Galliano's Spring 2011 collection for Dior inspires dreams of summer romance on the beaches of the Pacific Ocean.
So grab your sunscreen and get ready for a romance to remember.
