Whites of Spring and Summer.

Springtime and the merry month of May, such a vibrant time when wild flowers bring a little sparkle to the coast and countryside.  

Thrift Sea Pink and Scurvy Grass cling onto craggy rocks and Bluebells carpet the woods and waysides.  New leaves are bright and acid green, perfect, pristine, before rain and wind can spoil them. White is the predominant colour at this time, the delicate May flowers of the Hawthorne herald the beginning of Summer, along with Wood Anemone, Cow Parsley, Greater Stitchwort, Wild Strawberry, Garlic Mustard and Ramsons, which fill the air with the pungent aroma of garlic. Time for  Spring cleaning and a wardrobe reshuffle too, we need a capsule wardrobe perfect for holidays, bank holiday breaks, festivals and those very special occasions. 

Artisans and fashion designers traditionally take inspiration from nature for the colour palette of their season collections. White will never go out of fashion so it might be worth investing in a beautiful statement piece. This Roland Mouret Arreton pencil skirt has been a highlight of ITV's This Morning's gorgeous Holly Willoughby's wardrobe. A "perfect fit" for ultra feminine Holly, the skirt follows Roland Mouret’s classic methods of construction, hugging the body’s curves in white lattice weave, finishing below the knee in a slim hemline.
