HIGH/LOW INTERPRETATIONS OF SPRING’S MINIMALISM TREND

March 18, 2011

Even though we are knee deep in figuring out what are the key Fall 2011 trends, we have not forgotten that Springtime is indeed upon us. After working so hard to dissect all the Spring trends back in September, it is only useful if those trends translate into your closet. So even though here at The Sche Report we are a big promoter of investment pieces and the artisanal approach, we are also aware that we have readers dying to find those trends at their own price point. After some snooping around, we found that Minimalism is the anthem of most mass retailers this Spring and we have zoned in on Zara’s new Spring 2011 collection. The designers at the Spanish chain seems to have translated a few key minimalism trends into consumer-friendly versions for their customers around the globe.

Among them includes the Dries oversized blazer with friendlier proportions, a casual rendition of the Jil Sander t-shirt and column skirt combo, the Celine tunic and languid trousers, and of course the most popular of all Spring trends – the LWD.

In line with what we often preach here, even when shopping from a mass retailer, it is important to find pieces that will serve you over several seasons. Which is why the current wave of Minimalism provides a golden opportunity to score classic silhouettes in neutral palettes. Those items along with more high-end pieces will shape a wardrobe that has both longevity and style.
