Empower yourself in white

There comes a time in everyone's life, where there's a necessity to reset and restart. And this Spring designers are beting on white; this color is usually associated with concepts like clean, pure and calm. The perfect way to achieve your new year resolutions, refresh your look with this cool and edgy trend.

I hope you are not thinking of white as a boring choice, because designers have really put their creative side on hard labour sessions for this amazing pieces. They have channel white into the fierce direction of a futuristic amazon; think about fluid fabrics, layers and drapes to give you structure. But mainly focus on the textures of the fabrics, key point of the trend; Andrew Gn gives us a great example.

My favorite exponent of the trend would have to be David Koma, his Sci-fi tribal prints and fluid silhouette have really captivated me. Check out Louis Vuitton for a softer and sweeter version of this trend. Hakaam is also moving towards that direction, she presented a similar work on the prints. the most amazing thing about this prints is the 3-D effect they create on the clothes.

How amazingly cool is that, specially now that everything seems to be done in 3-D. I absolutely love that idea of white clothes with white 3-D prints that break the molde on the ordinary. Speaking of out of the ordinary, Gareth Pugh also jumped into the white train; he managed to take the 3-D effect to a whole new level. A new generation of clothing is now in the market, and it is very exciting!

As for the silhouette of the trend, we can resume it into tailored minimal lines, it almost has a clinical feel that makes us think about authority (remember it is supposed to be fierce). The peplum figurates as a must have item, once again; draped and fitted around the waist. Dresses are also key for the season and they can compliment practically any body figure, when chosen properly of course. So prepare yourself to embrace white for Spring with a futuristic feeling.
