Not just colour, but total white sneakers too, for all occasions

[On the cover: Balmain Kids S/S 2021]

There’s a desire for colour to cope in such difficult times, but also for “non-colour”, like white, which in symbolism expresses peace and hope for the future, encouraging order and mental clarity. It also complements laid-back, comfortable and easy to wash apparel. So just like for adults, total white garments and footwear are a must for the kid’s wardrobe at the start of this spring. Sneakers have become the footwear of choice for young wearers, for all occasions. In white they are unisex and accompany the growth of feet right from their first steps. The most imperceptible finishings or colour details are all it takes to change from masculine to feminine, but white and white alone always prevails. Here is what to choose from amidst proposals for the upcoming spring/summer.
