Turning a Blanc Page
by ABARA SG on Dec 31, 2022
As we waft into the first days of the New Year, isn’t it nice to dress up in all-white everything? Spring 2023 runways are showing an assortment of all-white looks, some which are romantic, poetic, lyrical and breezy. White is a symbol of purity, and unadulterated truth. White is literally light, which dispels darkness and ignorance and negativity. White makes everything clear and bright.
Think of all that white represents: The just-washed linens and spring cleaning; The head of the Roman Catholic Church, the Pope, the pilgrims of Islam wear white while going to Mecca; Brides traditionally, customarily, and culturally put on immaculate white wedding gowns, representing purity and innocence. Milk and Rice. Pearls. Paper. Tennis shoes, tees and undies.
The colour white is significant in culture, society, as well as psychology. White in a uniform has an aura of authority, think of pilots, naval officers and doctors’ and nurses’ gowns. Think of the white gloves of conductors, and traffic wardens and doormen. In fashion, pristine white is classy and luxurious, because it is hard to achieve and to maintain. There is the notion that through the colours you wear, the energies that these colours emit are directed at you, and reflected. According to astrology, white is one of the choicest colours to reach out for when looking to attract good luck and success your way.
At ABARA, we have a variety of white leather handbags to suit your every outfit, mood and need. Our very chic Tr’Apeze Bag comes in Snow Antique Natural crocodile leather. The precious exotic skin has been treated to evoke the snow-capped mountains of Himalaya – how romantic and poetic is that? The bag is a classic top handle bag with a modern, smart-formal silhouette that is unexpectedly spacious, and would go with a white suit or equally a white sweater-set. ABARA’s Bow Accordion Mini, which is a hit with fashion influencers and KOLs, is a multi-functional purse that comes in both an off-white calfskin and also a white crocodile leather. The versatile multi-way detachable strap allows you to use it as a wallet, across the body or around your waist; You can style it as a mini clutch for a white cocktail dress, or go completely casual with a white T-shirt and trainer. For those white fluffy sundresses or a white blouson, ABARA’s Vanity Case in white calfskin would be a perfect match!
Enjoy the whites in all its various shades and meanings and have a splendid and positive new year!
