Musette's Fashion Week Fun, Installment Two

'White Light/White Neat'

This week, designers prove that sometimes modesty is the best policy, with an assortment of demure and delicate looks. The materials are light, and the colour is white - our models are looking very virginal and pure as a result.

It was the best kind of spring fling at the Daughters by Obedient Sons show. Tailored pants and cropped jackets gave us Cape Cod cuteness with a bit of an edge. The collection's hats and sundresses came with a youthfulness that will be hard to top.

Thakoon left much up to the imagination in the form of floor length frocks and roomy tops. His Grecian-like garments and pretty floral prints are just about as ladylike as they come.

United Bamboo showcased an irresistible range of rompers, swing jackets, and shorts. While keeping it clean with natural tones and shapes, their exaggerated seersucker print left us dreaming of croquet matches and sundowners.

The boys at Proenza Schouler presented a shy sort of siren with a line that included structured trench coats, white gloves, and loose trousers. Mesh shirts were fastened right up, and flowing blouses revealed just a touch of skin - ideal looks for the sophisticated tease.
