Rule benders :: Seasonless Whites
Trends come and go so as summer comes to a close, the age-old question “Can I wear White after Labor Day?” comes up.
At KUFRI we’re OK with bending those rules, or making our own. And being enthusiasts of all things textile, we delve into the question… where did this fashion “rule” even come from?

When the first Monday of September became a federal holiday in 1894 the holiday began to signify the end of summer and vacations, and with that, the emittance of white apparel. The white hot “look of leisure” moves out as the rain clouds and changing seasons move in.
Luckily, in interiors, we love white no matter the season, and let's not forget, Coco Chanel, who famously wore white year round, as proof.
