When it comes Spring 2011 collections, magazines love featuring those who are loudest – Prada’s monkeys and bananas, Proenza Schouler’s neon lace and Gucci’s color blocking – to name a few. But let’s not forget that Spring 2011 New York runways were awash with white. Cutting back on excess and rediscovering minimalism.
“The New Shapes” is an editorial in Harper’s Bazaar March 2011 issue created by editor Brana Wolf with the help of set designer Peter Klein. Featuring the model Nimue Smit and photographed by Lachlan Bailey, the editorial shines light on minimal and subtle looks by the likes of Celine, Chloe, Reed Krakoff, Calvin Klein, Derek Lam, Balenciaga and Narciso Rodriguez.
And if minimalism is what you are after, you absolutely have to know about the book Minimalism and Fashion: Reduction In The Postmodern Era.
