In this period of the year where so many celebrate the notion of abundance, I am made mindful of how much we accomplish with quite little. Of course when I say that, I'm speaking about the Attire language and how we all use it. Its not always about having tweaked every accessory perfectly, having the most expensive of clothing, or even perfection of fit.
Sometimes its about the one thing that creates a singular expression by its uniqueness. A single characteristic, like drape, volume, color, or texture can take a simple declarative sentence like, "I am not at work", and turn it into a far more complex telling of your day's story.
But the idea of making simplicity work in a manner that tells a multi-layered story can also involve finding that one seemingly uncluttered thing, but having its physical perfection of form, volume and texture do the majority of the storytelling.
Or it can be form and pattern that tell the tale, even though the initial pieces involved are few, and of utter clearness.
Below here I am presenting images, and my own take on what I think makes them sing out in a special way, through plain clarity.
Any of us can bring notions like these into our clothing conversation. They needn't be expensive or perfect; only carefully considered, and used with thoughtfulness.
