WE ARE MINIMALISTS.
We don´t hide it. It is a fact that might be boring for somebody liking more opulent things but for us it´s mostly a matter of taste. “The lesser the better” is our mantra especially by looking for a suitable interior piece or another wardrobe article. We´d pick simplicity and clear linear elements each and every time.
Simplify, simplify, simplify… Do it with grace and easiness. The rule is to MAXIMAZE CLARITY. Clarity of your message, mood, inner feeling, seek a refinement of form by function. The result simple as that can be pretty fascinating. The outcome can look sooo simple but the execution is not, believe us. Usual equation is the simpler the look the more complicated achieving it.
According to us, minimalism is not just a trend, it is a philosophical constant flowing through decades and leaving its mark in all departments of society. There is a long evolvement from simple kid´s thinking to complicated assumption that adults make. And in the end you get the right answer or opinion by getting back to roots of simple derivation.
Style and fashion is part of “being more with less”. With less clothes, less accessories, less stuff in general. Minimalism itself eliminates non-essential and unnecessary parts to create one solid entity. At this point of writing this article it just popped in my mind: “What if I didn´t need to think about what to wear in the morning?” After asking myself this question, it was clear. There would be no fun in that! BUT what we actually can achieve is to organize our wardrobes every season, put away the pieces we do not wear anymore (if you really did not put that shirt on you in the last month, you will never wear it again). Simple as that. You wouldn´t believe the helpfulness of this simple step at the beginning of each quarter. Start now.
GREY IS THE NEW BLACK.
For purposes mentioned above, GREY would be perfect. Don´t be mistaking, we´re not talking about Mr. Grey. That phenomenon is quite over now. We found our new love interests in less keen but equally stylish things for the coming season.
So we put together the list of our ultimate inspiration pieces that are on our hot list from what we´ve seen lately. Because inspiration lingers everywhere around us, just open those beautiful eyes and see for yourselves what we saw.
