It's that time of year again: September, the month of fashion. New trends, new designers, new Instagram updates, new bouts of excitement – all induced by this wonderful month. With the beginning of September comes a blank slate: a time to reinvent and recreate and start over. It can be more complex than that, but there is simplicity in it too. The simplicity lies in the fact that with each new year, comes new, wonderful clothes. The title of this post weaves together the aforementioned concept along with one of the biggest trends for Spring 2014 – white-on-white. The trend was prominent in last year's collections, too, and is not yet abandoning its importance on the runway. Though less than a quarter of the shows of the season have been released, it is evident that white is here to stay for yet another season and each designer has used the hue in unique, covetable ways. I have chosen to highlight just a few of the many ensembles which reflect the trend perfectly; designers Jason Wu, Thakoon, and Victoria Beckham, among others, are incorporating shades of white in their latest creations. Victoria Beckham, in her quintessential British elegance, managed to merge her design aesthetic with a sports-luxe concept. Jackets, fur, collars, delicate box clutches: all components of Beckham's wonderful Spring collection, all done in a sleek shade of white. The collection was a refreshing change though, in the sense that it differed from Beckham's usual (but still beautiful) pencil skirts and body-con dresses. In addition to Beckham, Jason Wu and Thakoon brought white alive in their innovative clothing. Wu's powerful, New-York-chic look intertwined wonderfully with the all-white ensembles. Lace and tulle in white and cream shades enveloped models perfectly, while ornate python-skin totes and dainty stilettos were also part of the white color scheme. Though Wu included many other magical colors in his collection – ranging from midnight blue to silver – white seemed to play a vital, statement-making role. Similarly, Thakoon used the color in yet another luxurious form – the collection consisted of 'disarmingly gorgeous' satin coats, wide-legged trousers and embellished tunics and dresses. When opening the show, white was the principal color used, followed by baby-blue, black, and magenta. The impact of white this season is unquestionable – just ask the dozens of designers who've accommodated the color in their Spring 2014 collections. With the perfect balance of simplicity and the potential to be ideally-ostentatious, the shade is evidently here to stay.
