Minimalism in fashion has evolved since the monastic ensembles of Calvin Klein and Helmut Lang in the 1990s. As evidenced by several collections in Milan and elsewhere, designers are embracing the minimalist ethic of stripping away the non-essential, while adding dimension with exposed seams, rough drapery, textured stitchery and space-dyed yarns. The look works for both knits and wovens. The raw muslin feel is enhanced by a natural palette of gentle beiges, accented with pure white and light blue. Hand-wrought jewelry completes the artisanal aesthetic.
