Planning for some new white pieces in your summer wardrobe? Here's a handy selection of summer dresses and tops; all of which are lovely and elegant and feature a chic little marbled pattern:

His "," a series of six sculptures, explores "the way fabric hangs and folds, and is attempting to capture that lightness and gracefulness in stone."
