Minimalism


746.920904 WAL


I recently picked up Less is More – Minimalism in Fashion from the library and really fell in love with it. By definition minimalism is a style or technique (as in music, literature, or design) that is characterized by extreme sparseness and simplicity. Minimalism started as a trend in the arts, specifically painting and sculpture, which occurred during the 1950s. These artists used simple, typically massive, forms, which lacked color and intricate detail. Soon after minimalism reached great popularity and found its way into fashion. Minimalist designers such as Rei Kawakubo, Halston, and Yohji Yamamoto have greatly influenced fashion in the 20th and 21st century. Today we see minimalism everywhere. It is in our art, our fashion, and even our architecture. I personally love the idea of minimalism and my own personal style is much so influenced by it. I believe there is something to say about an outfit that comes off effortless without being covered head to toe in eccentric pieces and colors.
