As the cliché goes, there is beauty to be found in simplicity, whether it be Art, Mathematics or Physics. But the quest for the purest form of design is always overwrought with temptations to embellish with the unnecessary. Not saying that embellishments are bad, since they have their own merits. Often I found myself tempted to add another layer, then another, which works okay mind you. However it negates the purpose of achieving clearly defined, geometric silhouettes. Then again, if I were to compare my current sartorial choices to those of last year (feel free to check out the archives), I have distanced myself somewhat from bulky layers and heavy drapes, instead opting mostly for structured shapes, clean designs and blocks of colours. Even my makeup has gone from smokey to being cleaned up somewhat.
