A pared-back feel is prevalent as the design world becomes focused on what is being termed “Boredom Beauty.” This new design ethic sees basics reinvented with hidden detailing and purpose. Wardrobes concentrate on the achievable and wearable. Alongside this, a new male/female hybrid is introduced. As women reject the trend of dressing in masculine styles, as introduced in the “Female Shift” perspective of last season, the rise of the “New Man” means that men opt for the traditionally “feminine” colors of nude and blush in more subtle shapes. Indeed, there is a strong, ongoing focus on the classic shapes of the past with a modern interpretation. Form follows function as in Bauhaus doctrine, and in this theme, cut and finishing touches are key: details are refined and elegant.
