Spring Fashion: White Haute

Subtle detail brings out the excitement of the neutral white in this spring's lines. Find the latest fashion pieces for spring from our fashion shoot at the Ace Hotel.

Forget, for a season, the fabled lady in red. The woman in white will dominate the scene this spring. Designers poured on the white, from cotton to cream, suggesting a purification of the fashion palette and the advent of something new. The latest white pieces are anything but boring and feature subtle detail: basketweave embossment on dress suits, intricately knit vests, wraps with long fringes, eyelets on skinny pants, lace trim on dramatic sleeves and the fluttery folds of soft, silky blouses.
