White Night

By Nicola St John

Despite all this gorgeous summer weather, you can be sure it will soon be time to start rugging up again.

From cardigans to coats, you’ll no doubt be reaching for that extra layer.

Melburnians have a knack for winter dressing and bundling-up beautifully, following those effortless Europeans in looking great despite nippy temperatures.

But before you go reaching for your black pea coat, spare a thought for what has emerged from the frosty streets of New York for Fall Fashion Week.

From wraps to blanket finishes, the winter woolies seemed covered in snow. From white to camel, every shade in between seems decidedly cozy and bright.

What’s been dubbed “winter white” – a little ivory mixed with a little cream has been paraded down the runway from a dozen designers. Giving winter dressing a softer side, these light

colours in fuzzy fleece, wool and chunky knits just make you want to nestle a cup of tea by an open fire.

Notable mentions from New York include the white suit tailoring of Helmut Land and Tommy Hilfiger, but with its lovely use of winter white, Proenza Schouler looked the coziest in textured knits and relaxed trousers.
