Why Simplicity is Genius
In the fashion business, art itself is complex. Every second can be translated into different ideas. The flow of thoughts and stories of innovations are very abundant, that is why art itself is very complex. There is no standard to follow in designing, as well as no boundaries in learning. Often, we can see countless results of innovation in designs and improvement of availability of these ideas. A question may appear; how do you paint? Do you just paint with colours or do you set a plain background before doing the proper painting?
Just like painting, art can never be complex without existing simple fundamentals. You can never have the desire to colour a wall if it’s not dull for you. Someone will not be able to have a garden if their yard of grasses is enough for them. This is where simplicity creates a product of its own. Simplicity is the root of all art.
It is also not a hidden fact that black or white makes a great canvas. When you carry a black accessory, it will not surely clash with what someone wears, except with its own colour. Let’s set The Mystique as an example. This handbag is best for anything or any colour the wearer has. Any style the wearer does will not usually clash with a black accessory. Any neutral, bright, or sometimes similar colour will look fabulous with a very subtle and simple design. A simple handbag that does not eat a wearer style, like most of the accessories do, will appear like a body part to most of the wearer’s accessories. That is why simplicity is the root of all art, the king of all possibilities. Anything you will throw at it will be a genius piece!
Then, how to be simple?
Simple way–don’t give in to trends. Most trends are actually very excellent. Most popular designs are very intelligently made for most people, but not for all. If you want to do something like the things above, experimenting to put other colours in your style that will not surely clash, then do not follow most trends. Trends like chunky chain straps or fluffy feathers do not also just appear intelligently crafted, they are also very expensive. Most simple accessories, because they do not require more colours and styles are sold at a more affordable price. Trendy accessories usually come in different colours, different styles that will usually clash with a neutral clothing style. Let’s just take note that not all trendy accessories will clash with others, but to avoid spending too much, go with a simple price-to-quality ratio accessory. This will not just save your bank; it will also provide you the freedom of styling!
