The trend for minimalism is commonly seen after cultural oppression, so it is fitting that it has seen a resurrection in our current economic climate. We last saw minimalism in the early nineties when the economy was plagued with recession, pioneered by Calvin Klein and Prada. Fashion was stripped of fussy beading and instead saw clothing shaded in neutral tones and uncomplicated silhouettes. Although this may sound a little stark for your joyous little one, kidswear designers have taken on the practicality of minimalism, Velcro and poppers are used for fastenings, fabrics are print free and shaded in neutral tones such as stone greys and snowy whites and silhouettes are easy-to-wear, functional and sporty.
