Positive Spaces
The art of minimalist black

Tuesday, March 17, 2015 black or go back – in minimalist styles no less! Featuring Adam Lippes, PB 0110, Vita Fede, Aquilano.Rimondi, Frame Denim, and many more...

Speaking of shapes, the fit and flare silhouette is one of the most popular and easiest silhouettes to pull off. Today we put the twist on the flare game with this shirt dress with a scarf hemline for added volume. To top it off, pop a colour or opt for understated jewellery.

Luxe and tough, whatever you call it, combine these two and make them guess: casual or formal? Throw on a tailored black jacket to vamp up this look. This one is lapel-less and has a single hidden button, and when paired with ripped jeans, makes for an insouciant minimalist-chic outfit.

All black: yay or nay? We prefer a little variation, of course. This time, the classic black crossbody handbag takes centre stage. Team it with a pair of chic culottes; this style is still gaining a steady resurgence. And instead of sneakers, try a pair of espadrilles.

Instead of piling it on, cut it off! Peep-toe mules? Yes. Handkerchief hemline? Yes. The key here is to pick solid colours to make these items work because shapes and silhouette speak louder to the discerning. Throw them all together and witness the magic.

Hot Stuff
Beat the heat today

Friday, March 13, 2015  
The hot season is once again upon us. But fret not, we have the perfect solutions from the likes of Thakoon Addition, Adam Lippes, and VBH to make the coming months a breeze.
Feel the cool air drift across the ruffle hem of this dainty shirt dress from Thakoon Addition and light a Laduree lavender perfumed candle to keep you inspired for the coming months ahead! Keep within the theme and go for nude and silver metallic complements.

Ventilation! Air those arms with our plethora of sleeveless tops. It is also the best excuse to wear a pair of fluid pants. Try this tapered crop pants that come with a generous front pleat for extra breathing space. Match this glacier grey Adam Lippes number with this toasted almond VBHbag, two colours that are right on trend this season.

Whoever said anything about not wearing black on a hot summer day, has probably not seen this exquisite Thakoon Addition silk dress. This dress features an allover cosmic print, an open back, clever cutouts, and sheer sleeves. Go ahead and team it with black and gold accessories from Ginette NY and O Jour.

Maybe you want to keep it light – real light. How about an all white ensemble on a clear sunny day? While you’re at it, throw on some ivory and moonshine hues from Victoria Beckham and Vionnet. It doesn’t have to be that simple. You might even want to add a little drama with well-thought-out accessory choices, courtesy of Vita Fede and Asherali Knopfer.

To have and to hold

Monday, March 9, 2015
There is a new handbag brand in town and it is M2MALLETIER, a brand to consider for those of you who love minimalist structural bags. A M2MALLETIER handbag is simple. Its clean lines deliberately draw your attention to the most iconic part of the bag: the needle top handle.

What the designers Melissa Losada and Marcela Velez have done here is unique. We like to think of their creations as an innovation where classic notes and modern appeal collide to form a wondrous architectural design.

Is it just a classic leather handbag? Not quite. The M2MALLETIER bag is an ultra-modern handbag that will fit right into the now and even point the way forward 50 years and beyond. The needle top handle hardware pays homage to European armour found in the Middle Ages, which incidentally inspired the very studio each design was created in, a 19th Century compound in Spain. This old-school charm is then fused with an unmistakable modern shape.

It is the perfect balance between a timeless quality and a contemporary sophistication that the designers have found and defined so clearly.

Young or old, cool or conservative, the M2MALLETTIER handbag is certainly one bag for the minimalist at heart. Opt for cool monochromatic colours to inject some edge into your outfit or play it safe with mono-colour neutrals. Alternatively, go bold and pick a metallic option. The truth is, whichever style you choose, the bag's understated glamour will shine through like a discreet opulence. It is luxury at its most subtle.

To have and to hold,we say.
