This summer has been been all about jam packed minimalism, a phrase that might sound juxtaposed but when stripped down has sense. Because while I’ve enjoyed darting between futuristic, folk grunge, military and colourful gypsy tones, adopting these styles ina minimalistic manner has been the fine line to achieving lux. I’ve learnt from my mistakes over time that over indulging in a newstyle craving can be a layered mess rather than an eclectic aesthetic explosion. And instead, a trend can still be just as effectivewhen embraced in a matured statement way. Take my post below, which tamely tidal waves the seaside denim trend with a folky festival grunge. I love how rolling and romantically ripping up shorts creates impact in a minimalistic way, as they still exude masculinity, but also have a ‘macho hot pant’ vibe. And it’s been great to see so many menswear designers pushing the boundaries with shorts, playingwith the length to create different effects. Whether it’s drop crotch or high waisted, i’ve been inspired endlessley.
