The cut and details of the Carolina Herrera Spring 2011 collection were inspired by traditional clothes from Korea.

This is lovely, Lisa! I just re-posted on FBK and Twitter next. So wonderful to begin with THE white shirt and move into Carolina Herrera. I LOVE her new collection! ox

Such a great post....I am a "white shirt" junkie and am forever looking for the perfect white button down shirt, J Crew and Theory both have passed muster....tell me anything that doesn't look instantly chic with a white shirt!! Its just classes it up big time. Love this post and CH is such a class act, so sophisticated and elegant. She defines the idea behind a classic white shirt. Great post Lisa!!
Stop by doing a great giveaway, for a gorgeous Kilim bench!

Who is a better spokesperson (designer) for the iconic white shirt other than Carolina herself? You cannot go wrong can you with a well made white shirt. I must share a secret though, ever since I worked for Starbucks, I have a hard time wearing a white shirt. I feel like I'm going to whip up a cappuccino! I seriously need to get over that. Such a great post Lisa.

New Factory, Friend said...

I love your post on the white shirt. I too, am obsessed with white shirts, so started designing them in small batches. It was also important to me to have the shirts made in the USA. http://www.newfactoryfriend.com
