contraries

There are certain parallels to be drawn between the current so-called minimalist movement (which can be interpreted as a reaction to the opulence and ornamental nature of fashion on the majority of blogs on the internet) and the sans-coulottes of French Revolution. Both contain a form of criticism, weather intentional or not, towards their extravagant contemporaries, questioning the responsibility and appropriateness of blatant consumerism they are promoting.

charcoal


I’m currently living in my grey wool coat and black leather ankle boots.
Away from home my wardrobe was limited, which was something I really enjoyed. My favourite pieces became the ones with the least amount of colour and detail, like the small, leather crossover bag that lets your hands move freely, dark grey jeans and black cashmere or wool crewneck sweater. Simple and utilitarian. I am slowly moving away from navy and into the shades of charcoal.
