Trend: Geometric Monochromatism




1gray_landscapes_akris2gray_landscapes_valentino

The color gray has a timeless essence. When it comes to decorating your home, it’s usually incorporated into luxurious surfaces such as stone, velvet, felt, linens and paint. In the fashion world, gray has always defined the mature sphere. Mothers, aunts, uncles, teachers and politicians have always owned the hue- giving the impression that it’s a sea apart from trend-focused fabrics.

With the help of many heavy hitters, we’re starting to see a shift and a new appreciation for natural textures and gray planes. Gridded simplicity, architectural layouts and the contrasting accents have made their way into accessories and outerwear for both men and women. Everyone from Vince, Akris, Moncler, Proenza Schouler, Celine, Chloe, Prada and Valentino have embraced this neutral concoction, celebrating geometric monochromatism.

Intentionally or unintentionally, all of these pieces seem to link back to this piece from Pae White. “Dwight Harmon Painting/Overheard” was recently featured in the New York Times Style Magazine. It’s a stunning compliment to the collection.
