FW15 – The Return of Maximalism

After a few seasons of Pinterest boards full of minimalistic designs and outfits, FW15 is finally here ready to give you everything you need to know how to create your very own personalized closet. Truth be told, there´s a wide range of options and different styles for every type of person (from punk and edgy with Saint Laurent and McQueen´s Victorian mood to Burberry Prorsum and Chloé´s folk). So, my first advice? Because clothes shouldn´t dictate your personality (and these FW15 pieces really do seem to have gained their own), just decide who you want to be. Follow your most fashionable instincts. Remember that patterned and colorful mini skirt you thought you could never mix with an equally beautiful patterned blouse and lots of accessories? You should definitely try it on. Pretend you´re 5 again and play that dress-up game you used to. My second advice? When in lack of inspiration, go spy on your muses – and I´m not only talking about that secret instagram crush we all have… Dig deeper and watch again those old movies that used to inspire you, that book character you always felt connected with, that tv show where you first had your heart broken by a bag (or an handsome male/female intriguing and mysterious character).

In the end, you must feel audacious, leave the rules behind you and say: “Welcome back, Maximalism. I´m ready to give you a tight hug”.

  1. Oh this looks so fun! Definitely see a lot of maximalism during Fashion Week especially in Milan. I agree that fashion is a true manifestation of self, and no matter if you’re into minimalism or maximalism, as long as you are comfortable in your ensembles then go with your instinct! Truly an inspiration post dear! 🙂 xo~ Lena

  2. Your every word is worth the weight in pure Gold. As most people blindly follow whatever big brands dish out without giving a thought to their own creativity /personality/occasion. Yes I agree that we should first analyze our own inner self as our dress is just an extension of our subconscious personality and conscious self.While in reality ,we just mimic like a gibbon and ape the very next person,forgetting that zebra stripes will not look good on a giraffe or an elephant . And if you follow your instincts, then no way you can stop at minimalistic,as we still have a five year old trapped in our body, waiting to experiment to the maximum.Finally i meet u on ur blog after our lil chat on instagram. Aaah I should blog more often now.Have a super great day sweets.
