1929: Days of the boater, the blazer and the beautiful young man. White was the rage. That year Harper's Bazaar said, 'White, of course, we always have with us.' We still have. In Deauville and on the Cap d'Antibes, beach pajamas were the thing. Now trousers go everywhere. Ken Scott's white crêpe trouser suit, single breasted over wide pants with turn-ups; to order at Fortnum & Mason. Graham Smith's white buckled turban; £21 18s at Fortnum & Mason. White sandals; 8½ gns, Russell & Bromley.
