When it comes to designing a White + Warren collection, it’s all about quality, craftsmanship, and a love of color. The same could be said for RAMONA’s organic Italian wine spritzes, which take a modern approach to Italian aperitivo spritz culture. It only seemed natural that RAMONA would be the perfect partner for a limited-edition cashmere capsule collection that celebrates summer and all the joy it brings. Ahead of the launch, RAMONA founder Jordan Salcito teamed up with W+W President Catherine Morrissey to share their tips on how to host a casual summer gathering—and we took plenty of entertaining notes.
One of our favorite rules when it comes to dressing is letting the occasion be your guide. The White + Warren X RAMONA capsule blends the notions of summer with a playful sensibility: a color-blocked Travel Wrap is a simple yet bold accessory, a mesh sweatshirt adds texture and interest, and intarsia-knit citrus fruit epitomize the fun flavors of RAMONA’s organic Italian spritzes. For this kind of get-together, Catherine balances the zesty shade of her cashmere knit with a white wide-leg pant.
For a summer gathering that could use an extra special touch, set the tone with a signature cocktail. When the drink menu is exciting, it makes even the simplest get-together feel exciting and memorable. That’s where Jordan, award-winning sommelier, comes in. Her twist on the classic Paloma cocktail is a delightfully refreshing combination of sweet and tart. And what’s more? The cocktail can be done mere minutes before guests arrive.
