White is always a summer favourite, but in recent seasons, it has been used in a very minimalist, stark way. For Spring/Summer 2015, white is being taken to a whole new level of detail and sophistication, through the use of gorgeous textures and fabric treatments. No longer just a simple white cotton shirting or jersey fabric, white was season at Paris Fashion Week in the form of broderie anglais, lace, knitwear, pinstriped, sequinned, appliquéd and more. Whatever texture you could add to it, we saw it at Paris Fashion Week. And so, in this edition of Trendspotting from the SS15 collections, we take you through our favourite textured white pieces of the season. There's just something about white that feels so light and refreshing--perfect for summer; and we can't wait to start wearing these pieces when they drop in store this spring!
