Minimalism Spring/Summer 2011
3.1 Phillip Lim
We’ve barely set foot in the year 2011 and already, the fashion houses have their pre-fall collections for 2011 up for viewing. I’m not about to get that ahead of myself though, first things first, I’m looking at the Spring and Summer collections and one of the big trends this season – Minimalism, as seen at many of the major fashion houses, among others the ones I have featured above: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Chloé, Jil Sander and Prada.
As you know, I live in Sweden, and Swedish designers are known for (and very good at) minimalism in particular. Brands like Acne and Filippa K (just to name a couple) are famous for their minimalistic designs and of course this spring is no exception. It’s all about keeping it clean and simple, no frills and no excesses, just plain and stylish.
Minimalism is something you can (and should) apply to more than just your fashion wardrobe this year. Use the beginning of the year to purge your life of excesses – clean our your closets, sell off anything you don’t need or use and organize yourself. Learn to buy only what you really need, it’ll save you both time and space and will make your life feel less cluttered and disorganized, leaving room for a clean and open mind.
