Trend Report FW2010: Less is More
Fashion brands Celine and Chloe already set the mood last season, and for fall the minimalistic trend they started, is again huge. The motto: less is more still applies and not only for Chloe and Celine.
Clean cuts, simple silhouettes, hardly any prints and as little accessories as possible: that’s how you would describe the minimalistic trend in a nutshell. And that’s what brands like Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, MaxMara and Dries van Noten did in their collections. Even the Gucci collection looked more simple than ever.
It certainly makes us think twice while getting dressed. Do I really need that printed legging, that bright-colored tunic, that scarf, the belt, the hat and all the jewellery? Should I perhaps keep it more simple?
And that’s exactly what the minimalistic trend is all about. Buy one or two really beautiful, well tailored, more expensive (designer) pieces and let go of all the needless extras.
Uhh..we’ll think about it!
