Look of the Moment: Practical Counts


Calvin Klein and Celine Fall-Winter 2010

After a few seasons of questionable winter wear, Celine and Calvin Klein are offering something more on the functional side. See their clean neck-to-toe looks? They're pretty useful when that darn city blizzard comes by.

Look for something pure, spare, structured, textured, loose...

And speaking of those labels, it seems minimal is the new (or not-so-new) trend for Spring 2011. That means a lot of restraint from our fashion side, and more on our philosophic side. Look for something pure, spare, structured, textured, loose, anything without the glitz. Jeans and T-shirt will never look more appealing.

Want more minimal inspirations for Spring? Ladies, refer to Prada, Chloé, Celine, Calvin Klein and Jil Sander. For dudes, look up Hermès, Dior Homme, Balenciaga, Prada, Raf Simons and Petar Petrov. I'll even add Ann Demeulmeester's sanitarium as a wildcard.

I hate it when womens' coats don't have pockets.

Always loved minimalist collections because I like to buy clothes I'm going to keep for a long time.
