Enduring Love: Blue & White Have Consciously Coupled, Again

If you’re looking for a slice of paradise this summer, but a golden ticket out of lockdown seems a fairytale away, allow ocean blues and pure whites to sartorially transport you.

Blue seems to be a great allrounder. It’s office-appropriate yet belongs on the beach. It’s off-duty dressing in the guise of denim and cotton and it’s occasion wear when applied to prints and silks. It lends its appeal to colour lovers and minimalists alike, meaning it’s versatility is boundless. Team it with white, too, and it’s instantly refreshing. 

From sailors at sea, to Italian gondoliers, from Toile De Jouy prints to those inspired by Lisbon’s Azulejos tiles, consider every form of Santorini-sea-blue paired with crisp, fresh white your passport to paradise.
