Trendspotting- White

White is proving to be central to next spring's minimalist movement.  Of course Lacoste featured lots of white - as we would expect. But several designers like Vivienne Tam, Derek Lam and Philadelphia favorite Nicole Miller worked more than a handful of graceful stark white pieces in their collection. Miller gave her long white ensembles a tuxedo twist while Parabal Guring worked in solid white gowns as did Adam Lippes who also mixed in white shirt dresses - that btw, boasted a perfect just at the calf length. Next summer white will be clean, sexy and totally flirty with a chicness often reserved for black. The era of the nudes is over. It's all white, baby.
