Does your design style reflect YOU? Or are you a multiple design personality? We paired some minimalist, avant-garde shoe designs with interiors that might be a reflection of their designer's lifestyle standards (similar analogy to why dogs look like their owners). Minimalism will always take the cake with a subtle, yet unforgettable statement. The key ingredients are: timelessness, functionality and simplicity. 'Less is more' certainly speaks volumes.
Short history lesson:
"Minimalism emerged in New York in the early 1960s among artists who were self-consciously renouncing recent art they thought had become stale and academic. A wave of new influences and rediscovered styles led younger artists to question conventional boundaries between various media. The new art favored the cool over the 'dramatic.'" - TheArtStory.org.
Dutch fashion designer, Iris van Herpen is truly one of a kind. Inspired by architecture and nature, van Herpen bridges the gap between disciplines with a no-boundary approach for her couture fashion pieces. Some may question this designer’s avant-garde method, but we are simply in awe of this wearable art collection. As Coco Chanel once said, ‘In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.‘
Here is how we translate van Herpen’s visions in our designer minds:
