Stripped down, simple, clean. Those are just a few words that describe Minimalism. This fashion trend has been in circulation since the 80’s, and became more prominent in American fashion during the 90’s. Don’t believe me? Just google Calvin Klein. Let me just say that art and fashion go hand in hand with one another. In art minimalism is defined as a style that uses pared down design elements, well that statement applies to minimalism in fashion also. Which brings me to starting off this post with a basic principle that you’ll need to keep in mind if you want to conquer this style: Less is more.
Anna Pitchouguina’s not constrained by the usual colours range designers opt for in the autumn and winter months. In fact the East London based fashion designer’s collection mixes electric blues, yellows, and greens with muted tones of navy, grey –and a show stopping silver cocktail dress. The autumn/ winter 15/16 season from Pitchouguina plays on the word cosy, as the made in London garments are contrived of soft linens, and warming wools. You’ll also notice that the collection plays with texture, and hand stitched details. Hands down this collection is something to covet.
