While on a recent trip to Tuscany, as always
I am struck by the never ending beauty
of landscape, art, architecture and fashion.
In evidence was that singular garment,
the crisp white shirt
which seems to herald
Spring’s expected soothing warmth and
Summer’s hotly anticipated intense sunshine
There is something luxuriously decadent about the CWS
sun drenched day scenario:
wearing a white shirt of fine cotton cloth
the soft feel against the skin and
add to this sensation
the warmth of a sun kissed day
A closet staple, which can be worn in its many guises:
cropped, flowing, sleeved or not, collared or not …
casual with jeans or partnered with a long evening skirt.
The crisp white shirt can be styled with anything
for any occasion, for any time of day …
a wardrobe must, a wardrobe main- to- stay
Venezuelan born designer, Carolina Herrera
known for her own classic beauty and style
champions the CWS as statement piece;
as Coco Chanel is to the LBD, so is
Carolina Herrera to the CWS.
For her diffusion range CH Carolina Herrera s/s 2013,
Ms. Herrera has created a capsule line
the White Shirt Collection.
For all true CWS aficionados, another wonderful wardrobe addition
for all new inductees, welcome to the CWS side
of white as signature colour and
the white shirt as signature piece.
