What to buy this sea­son.

OFF THE AISLE, THE COLOR WHITE CON­TIN­UES TO TURN HEADS AND RAISE QUES­TIONS.

Town & Country (Philippines) - - CONTENTS / APRIL - S.B.

“Mme. Modish wears white from the tip of her hat to the point of her lit­tle white shoe,” read “The Fash­ions” col­umn in one 1907 is­sue of U.S. town & coun­try. A cen­tury ago the co­or­di­nated look was the height of Belle Epoque style for our read­ers. Later, debu­tantes like Peggy Hitch­cock and Ann Fire­stone brought it back—Slim Aarons pho­tographed them in their white kid gloves and gowns at the Wal­dorf As­to­ria for t&c in 1951. Ever tra­di­tional, Bri­tish roy­als have long cham­pi­oned the white ac­ces­sory cause. (Queen El­iz­a­beth would never carry a white hand­bag with­out co­or­di­nat­ing heels.) This sea­son the look was on the run­ways at Dior, Stella McCart­ney, Os­car de la Renta, and Fendi. Though “La­bor Day stow­away” is an­ti­quated, Myka Meier, who runs the Plaza Ho­tel Fin­ish­ing Pro­gram, says some rules still ap­ply: Don’t wear white to a friend’s wed­ding, and no scuffs. “Whites are meant to be kept white,” Meier says. “Oth­er­wise, it’s like walk­ing around with chipped nail pol­ish.”
