TREND SPY.......LOW LUXE.





AW14

TREND



          Normcore aka 'Perfectly Boring'.........

Hermes A/W14


Jil Sander A/W14


Joseph A/W14


------------------------

Call it what you will, this palate cleansing anti fashion has become a big trend. 

It's about standing out by just fitting in....

Confusing?

  Not really...... 

 It's stripped back, simpler the better muted shades, plus the classic's, grey, navy and black. 
The softest of knits, and beautiful basics that work for you
 all day, every day.

Some might say it's boring and bland, or just a new name for minimalism?

 But low key luxury is wearable, investment dressing, that I would rather hand over my credit card for, than a short lived trend, 
that has often died before it hit's the stores.
