Whitney Linen

Whitney Linen (George Pimentel / October 24, 2013)

Is there a more Florida fabulous fabric than linen?

Consider this:

1. It's lightweight-ness is perfect for the sub-tropics (OK, maybe not right this minute).

2. It's a resort wear classic, which means it is impervious to the whims of fashion.

3. The tensile strength of linen is twice that of cotton and three times that of wool.

Gwyneth Paltrow loves it, and she is a know-it-all Ms. Smarty-Pants...but rarely wrong about style.

If you want to check out what all the fuss is about, then you've got to go to the Whitney Linen resort wear trunk show at Canton Ranch Miami Jan. 10 and 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

The event - which is free and open to the public - will showcase the women's and men's spring/summer 2014 collection direct from the runways as well as the home and spa collection.
