8 fashion brands every minimalist will love

By: Liz Guber

Although Alessandro Michele makes a compelling case for more-is-more, some of us will always be drawn to restrained, clean designs. These labels are proving that minimal style doesn't have to boring or unimaginative.  

 

Saul 

This LA-based label shows that minimalism and ruffles aren't mutually exclusive. Everything is crafted from deadstock vintage fabrics, giving the clothes a nostalgic feel. Our pick? The peach silk slip dress that's oh-so-Cher-Horowitz.

null Matteau Swim

For those of you who prefer your bikini free of palm fronds and hibiscus blooms, there's Aussie brand Matteau Swim, known for basic maillots and high-waisted swim bottoms in a stark palette of black, grey and white. 

null

Bevza

To call Svetlana Bevza's line minimal wouldn't do it justice. The Ukrainian label's left-of-centre approach to texture and shape results in thoughtful clothes with unexpected elements. 

null

Toit Volant

Alnea Farahbella's label Toit Volant is made in the USA with a commitment to sustainable sourcing and manufacturing practices. The designs are boxy, versatile and unfussy. 

null

ACHRO  

Designed in Arts District of Downtown LA, this California-cool label balances a laid-back sensibility with a distinctly urban vibe. It's minimalism that doesn't feel stark. 

null

Objects Without Meaning

For this 5-year-old label, the wearer is the vessel. The clothes are made with a material-driven, unembellished mindset, so you can go ahead and give them your won spin.

This Montreal-based label keeps production local (the clothes are sewn in Montreal and some of the fabrics are printed in North America) and its ethos is similar to most of the other brands in this list: to let the individual add personality to the clothes.

null

Urban Outfitters Rework

Not to be confused with UO's Urban Renewal line (which takes vintage pieces and modifies them), the newly launched Rework creates entirely new garments from recycled fabrics. Think of it as a refined option for all you vintage store trawlers.
