Consider the little black dress placed on notice. Crisp whites are right this season. Portland labelMakool, for one, built its entire Spring/Summer 2011 collection around the new neutral, with an array of gauzy alabaster and ivory frocks awash in raw, undyed organic cotton, silk chiffon, vintage lace, and hand-crocheted embellishments. Made to order in the Oregon city, each dress is as breezy as it is becoming.
Twirl your way into Aard, a low-back gown with a tulle overlay for your inner White Swan, or go Grecian with the strappy Zon with its cinched-in elastic waist. If bare legs aren’t your bag, slip into the Lente blouse. It has adorable ruffled sleeves and a forgiving waistband.
“These are classic organic-cotton summer dresses inspired by air and lightness,” says designer Anisa Makhoul.
“These are classic organic-cotton summer dresses inspired by air and lightness, for a carefree feeling,” Anisa Makhoul, the label’s founder and designer, tells Ecouterre. “Their construction makes them ‘no fuss’; everything is lined and super-easy to wear on a hot summer day.” Can your LBD do the same?
