10 minimalist fashion brands to know and buy now

Like many other fashion terms, “minimalism” is one that has become more and more diluted over time. Going from the boundary-pushing movement of the 80s and 90s, championed by Issey Miyake and Calvin Klein, to becoming a broad concept referencing anything rendered in black and white, minimalism has experienced something of an identity crisis. But then came the new guard.

British fashion designer Phoebe Philo was one of the first contemporary designers to launch the new minimalist revolution. Taking the reins from Celine in 2008, Philo began creating some of the most defining styles of the decade that are still coveted to this day. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s The Row also led the charge with their more pared-down approach to fashion, which favors construction, timeless design and luxe fabrications over fleeting trends.

Skip 15 years and the minimalist market is booming. Aided by the pioneering powers of social media and growing pressure on the industry to create collections that will stand the test of time, the list of brands continues to grow. Minimalist fashion lovers certainly have no shortage of options: from Totême and Raey to The Frankie Shop and Khaite, each is a testament to the fact that minimalism is no longer a one-dimensional aesthetic.

So, to celebrate the new guard brands that are bringing minimalist style back to life, we’ve created a definitive list of the names you need to know by now. Scroll down to view and purchase our edition.
