MINIMALISM

What to do in summer 2023 – and what to wear while doing it?

In Spain the temperatures already exceeded summery heights while northern Europe is still stuck in a rainy spring. While both sides might wish for the opposite climate, trips are planned and last years summer favorites will be brought out soon. Therefore, it is finally time to fill whichever gaps are to be found in your wardrobe while sipping cocktails in cool couture on your couch.

For some sparkles might be replaced this summer with an ode to the bygone days of the ever so minimalist 90s. After all the dazzling designs some prefer sleeker looks this season, which will not look any less interesting. Under the sizzling sun, it might feel more appropriate to opt for vibrant colors but cremes and black are the easiest candidates to achieve this aesthetic, as well as to pair with a pop of color – in form of a fresh flower bouquet as well as a summery accessory.

HELMUT LANG | 0

The modernist dress in foam green consists of sleek layers. Due to that the garments clean lines are broken up and the piece becomes soft and flowy without looking girly or romantic.

LA PERLA | 42 IT

La Perla might have created the most perfect slip dress. The simple piece is decorated with subtle white piping and added flounce at the hem puts the spring into every wearers’ step. Being rather minimal the spaghetti strap dress has a slight sheen due to its satin material.

LOUIS VUITTON | S

Ever wondered why the Louis Vuitton team looks so chic and classy? Now you know – a uniform shirtdress used to be responsible for their perfect appearance. The staple in a dark navy is upgraded with the smallest details around the hem of the skirt. In the front it is slightly shorter, to elongate the wearers' legs, while an overly long button bar is adding some surprising detail.

YVES SAINT LAURENT RIVE GAUCHE | S

Black and cream are the colors strongest associated with the French fashion house YSL. Here a balloon-shaped cardigan with elegantly puffed sleeves is oozing the je ne sais qoui only the French have mastered. The simply knitted body of the piece is set against a fluffy material on the sleeve. To finish it off a black button bar with glistening buttons as well as black piping at the sides are added – creating a timeless and interesting piece.

JONATHAN SIMKHAI | XS

Jonathan Simkhai took a simple blouse and created a detail-oriented, slinky masterpiece. The shiny garment made of satin almost looks like it slid down the wearer’s shoulder, with a loose, oversized, draped collar to match. An asymmetric hem is enhancing this look, while the champagne coloring keeps the garment classic and elegant enough for the day- and nighttime.

PROENZA SCHOULER WHITE LABEL | 2

A picture is worth a thousand words - which is true with this detailed top from Proenza Schouler's White Lable. The front of the leather piece appears simple, with its thin fabric straps that tie at the back. At the back, on the other hand, the shirt is divided in two. In the upper part, it is closed tightly with buttons, in the lower part, on the other hand, only one button is used, through which the solid material is slightly flared.

GIANNI VERSACE | 44 IT

A vintage corset created by Gianni himself is perfect for the revival of the noughties. The black garment has woven in white pinstripes, providing a seriousness to an otherwise flirty top. For all the lovers of practical garments the piece is closed with a full-length zipper at the side, instead of the only decorative buttons in the back – easy access and very comfortable.

VINTAGE

Timeless and classic are these 80s clip-on earrings. The gold hoop appears to be an oversized huggie – very flattering and fashionable without being too demanding or difficult to style.

LANVIN

This little white bag is an absolute gem to be found. The handles are discreetly attached via the golden initials of the brand founders J and L. Due to the letters similarity it almost appears like they're just part of the design rather than a logo. The long shoulder strap is attachable in addition to the short handles. These handles give the handbag a slight almond shape, in which everything can be elegantly accommodated.

BRUNELLO CUCINELLI | XL

This lightweight shirt is by Italian masters of quality. The long-sleeved top is made off a soft rib fabric in a creamy oatmeal shade.

PRADA | 40 IT

A classic with a twist - this is the best way to describe this Prada blazer in a deep beige with a small leather buckle. The piece has invisible buttons, to keep the lines sleek and chic. Due to the high collar, it is perfect for fall and winter. This tailored frock can be kept for season after season, as the quality and simplicity of the piece are going to stand the test of time.

NEOUS

Whoever said bags aren’t art clearly never saw what Neous created. Here a small bag is swirling like a modernist sculpture that can only be loved – even by the biggest advocate of minimalism. Resembling a very abstract basket the wearer does not have to worry about anyone snatching their belongings, as on the inside a small sack is to be found, securely fitting all personal belongings.

product details

DIOR | 38

The perfectly tailored vest by Dior is an iteration of the famous Bar jacket of the Maison. Since the introduction of the garment in 1947 and with it the New Look the basic idea has been in almost every collection of Dior, no matter the current creative director. Here the jacket lost the sleeves and grew in length but kept the immaculate tailoring. The heavy material gives the vest a luxurious feel, while the elegance and simplicity of the cut will upgrade every look. Worn on its own, over a turtleneck or a blouse, this piece is as versatile as flattering.

LOUIS FÉRAUD | 46

Vintage Louis Féraud caters to those who want an elegant look. The classic, dandy pinstripes are modernized by the collarless design. The oversized shape of the long blazer is a plus in terms of current trends, yet it is still classic enough for a long-lasting relationship.

DIOR

The Y2K trend is here to stay and so are little baguette bags: a short strap, to wear it under the arm, and a small, mostly rectangular shape. This model of dark blue patent leather, with a contrasting silver closure. The round logo closure is understated but still recognizably Dior, for those who know about it. Estimated to come from the 90s, it is a rare-to-find bag.
