Less Is More

Hi everyone, Happy Monday!

Hope you all had an awesome weekend! :)

Minimalist vibe, one of 2013's Spring/Summer trends, has been taken very seriously on all the runways and by off-duty models, bloggers, and celebrities. Why? Because it not only embraces the idea that chicness can also be brought out by simple and breezy pieces, and most importantly, it's weather appropriate. Two of my favourite designers, Helmut Lang and 3.1 Phillip Lim are no strangers to clean-cut and "less is more" design and their new collections have taken minimalism onto a literal level. It's really good to see high-end garments not only can shine on the runways, but also be practical for everyday people to purchase. 

I always believe fashion is a wearable art. With many architectural-inspired fashion designers emerged over the years, fashion and architecture play an ensemble in harmony. In my outfit today, I made no hesitation to pair this white top with a pair of high waist suit shorts to create a simple minimalism-inspired look. 

I fell in love with this top from the first sight. Not only the detailed design around the neckline and the three-dimensional patterns on it caught my eye,  it was also the architectural touch and tough-look structure really made it special. 

So what do you think about minimalist fashion trend? Love it? Hate it? 

Thank you so much for reading! Hope all of you will have a great week. :)
