S/S 2014 – Back to the Nineties

S/S 2014 - Back in Nineties

Even if  everyone is still questioning if Minimalism as trend ever went out of fashion, since its born thanks to Miuccia Prada, designers are in the 1990s for Spring 2014, but this season grunge and punk are giving space to the clean minimalism of the late ‘90s early 2000. Delicate spaghetti-strapped slip dresses and simple suits and separates are a strong element of difference to the grunge movement (thanks Saint Laurent!) that we have seen in the past season. The mood is more polished but without loosing any power of eye catching element.

Introducing cleaning textures and silhouettes, the slouchy jeans, the cropped tops and the chunky heels are still massive pieces but simpler: so basically the “less is more” fashion rule stays strong from Paris to NYC across the Spring Summer 2014 .

A strong and cool rebel lable like Rick Owens, embraces the extreme luxurious sportwear in a natural palette, with a huge use of draping and leather refinitions.

Also Junya Watanabe is working only with denim, ultra-suede, and cotton, the Japanese designer cut coats, tunics, and dresses with  draps, layers, twists and knots.

An amazing brand new way to see the Minimalism is Alexander Wang: girlish, still pure and really new and interesting palette (pastels) is a little bit of fresh air mixing sportwear and clean lines.

Basically Minimalism offers elegance, and a dress down effect that works 24/7, but the real trend need to keep simple also the accessories and make up and hair, and also to keep an eye on cuts and quality of the clothes otherwise it might look very cheap.

Anche se tutti si chiedono se il Minimalismo come tendenza sia mai passato di moda, dalla sua nascita grazie a Miuccia Prada , i designers sono mentalmente nel 1990 per la prossima primavera – estate 2014: grunge e punk stanno dando spazio al minimalismo dei tardi anni ’90 /inizio del 2000. Delicati abiti sottoveste e semplici completi sono un elemento chiave per il movimento grunge (grazie Saint Laurent!) che abbiamo visto in passato come mood di stagione.
Introducendo tessuti e sagome pulite, jeans morbidi, crop tops e tacchi monumentali vige la regola “less is more”.
Un brand forte e ribelle come Rick Owens, abbraccia lo sportwear di lusso estremo con una tavolozza naturale, con enorme impiego di drappeggio e rifiniture in pelle.
Anche Junya Watanabe lavora con jeans, suede e  cotone, tagliando cappotti, tuniche e abiti con drappeggi, sovrapposizioni, pieghe e nodi.
Un nuovo incredibile modo di vedere il minimalismo lo propone Alexander Wang: femminile, puro e innovativo con un’ interessante gamma di colori (pastello). E’ una ventata di aria fresca mescolando sportwear e linee pulite.
Fondamentalmente il Minimalismo offre eleganza, veste con un effetto che funziona 24/7 , ma la tendenza reale necessità di mantenere semplici anche gli accessori, make up e capell , e anche per tenere d’occhio i tagli e la qualità dei vestiti altrimenti potrebbe sembrare molto cheap.
