New Minimalism: Less is More
10/23/10

“The secret of happiness, you see, is not found in seeking more,
but in developing the capacity to enjoy less.” - Socrates

Like in life, there is something refreshing about keeping things simple, clean and understated. I'm digging the new minimalism trend and love the idea of intertwining it with hints of androgyny. When I think of new minimalism, Céline, Calvin Klein, Jil Sander and Rick Owens automatically come to mind. The best thing about this beautiful bare trend is that it so starkly contrasts the cluttered trends of the past: sequins, fur, feathers, brocade, patchwork, and eccentric colors. Simplicity has made a strong comeback since the 90's in my mind and hopefully it's here to stay.
