After the last exhausting rainy days it's time to take a break and travel with your mind for a few minutes, pretending to be lying under the bright and warm sun of some island in the heart of Caribbean sea... however you know what they say: dreaming doesn't cost a thing! But beyond dreams and imagination, it's time for us to be prepared for summer and refrsh our wardrobe...
If the griefs and the rigors of the economic crisis have demoralized you, cheer up: S/S 2013 promises cheerful, light and relaxed. After a winter characterized by baroque, neo-victorian and gothic references, dominated by strong and dark colors like black and burgundy, this summer will be full of bright colors!
Pretty in white... this is the key word of s/s 2013. The non-color par excellence is confirmed as one of the hottest trends of season presented in a new and cooler way, characterized by transparences, overlaps, laces and embroidery that make it elegant, romantic, easy and sexy at the same time. Who tought that white was a banal choice for summer will have to change his mind...

I don't think that exists another color that represents summer better than white: it's so fresh and bright and it's able, like other few colors, to give to the most basic outfits an allure of grace and elegance... a from of inconscious innocence, a statement of intent, presented like a canvas to be painted.
