Neo Minimalism: neo-geo

You gotta love Neo-Minimalism for it’s attempt to portray culture in an orderly fashion. In the neo-geo perspective of minimalism, it’s all about bold shapes, colors and sharp angles … Neo-minimalism is a rather vaguely defined art style/movement of the late 20th, early 21st centuries, in painting, sculpture, architecture, design, and music. It is sometimes referred to as “neo-geo”, “Neo-Conceptualism“, “Neo-Futurism“, “New Abstraction”, “Poptometry”, “Post-Abstractionism”, “Simulationism”, and “Smart Art”. http://www.visual-arts-cork.com/history-of-art/minimalism.htm http://weconnectfashion.com/fido/getarticle.fcn?&type=trends&SearchString=handbag&id=737870PS0000234&start=1&tr=10 http://www.29secrets.com/sections/style/spring-2011-fashion-trend-bold-prints-and-stripes http://trendbible.wordpress.com/2010/06/14/satellite-trend-zig-zags/ http://www.nytimes.com/1987/07/06/arts/what-do-you-call-art-s-newest-trend-neo-geo-maybe.html?pagewanted=2&src=pm Continue reading Neo Minimalism: neo-geo

Velvet! Fall 2010 Mood Board

    There are few fabrics that can be classified as both rock and royal at the same time, velvet is one of them. There are many types, but in my opinion, crushed and burnt has the most personality, with it’s variance in color and texture.   For now velvet is at home on the street, not head to toe velvet, unless it’s the Bodkin catsuit, but as accents, trims, or one strong piece, be it shoes, skirt, jacket, vest, or a simple dress silhouette.  A little goes a long way and dressing it down is key.  Think rocker, crushed … Continue reading Velvet!
