Color play may be the season’s most pronounced trend, but the unobtrusive simplicity of white is in a league of its own. Although it is often an allusion to youth and innocence, it has also taken on a chameleon skin—able to conform or rebel—with and from the dictates of high fashion. We adore how these designers have taken the color to new heights, breaking the stereotype that white is too safe, too plain and too common to elicit a symphony of jaws dropping on the floor.
