I could honestly write an essay on the beauty and exceptional grandeur of simplicity and minimalism. "Reduction" is something that used to resonate as boring or even snob to my own ears. I remember when I was a practically a child in the early 90's (in the initial emergence of minimalism in fashion) that it was described as "anti-fashion". However, as one travels through ostentatious experimentation and high "a la mode" practices, can only develop and grow to embrace the beauty in high construction, tailoring and understatement as opposed to flamboyant or overdesigned pieces. Inventiveness and beauty can be found in inherent purity and this is evident in nature itself. Minimalism thriving in form and content of all things around us: The vastness of the blue sky, the air through the clouds, the form of the leaves. Intricate but oh so lucid and quiet. Yet, ever-present and limitless. "Less is more" an aesthetic tactic of arranging complicated components to create an illusion of simplicity. That is art. Art is fashion and quality more meaningful than quantity.
