Minimalist Menswear Accessories for Summer.
Minimalism is a hard trend to pull off successfully. The most recent wave of this trend is no exception. But, approached correctly, the modern minimalist man will be admired by all; minimalism gives the impression of effortless style and sophistication. This article aims to direct you to achieve exactly that through the art of accessorising.
The 1971 Delon slip on is the ideal casual shoe. Its modern, elegant style allows you to fabulously finish a number of minimalistic outfits. The sneaker consists of a light grey luxurious suede upper, and a white, robust, rubber sole, which alludes crisp style. A suede bomber would look great with this fantastic footwear in the summer sun.
This smooth, simplistic band of rose gold is discretely branded by Ted Baker. The brushed design of the timeless calming cuff is subtle, thus adding definition whilst remaining minimalistic. The metallic strap can accompany any outfit adding sophistication and style.
Ted Baker’s flipova belt is the epitome of minimalistic accessory design with a modern twist. Its reversible design allows it to match with almost any outfit. With the grey and blue colourway, the blue adds accent to a plain outfit and enables a more dressed down style, whilst the light grey leather exudes modern minimalism and is functional for both casual and formal attire. The brand cleverly suggest to dress it with their SORCOR chinos, which we further recommend to be accompanied by a white shirt.
This heritage wheeled suitcase is the fabulous result of Reiss teaming up with SteamLine. The Wayfarer is part of a classic luggage range befitting of the modern man with a taste for travel. It is specifically designed to fit with carry-on luggage restrictions. Crafted from vulcanised fibre board for durability, there is still a fabulous aesthetic to the case that exudes modern minimalism. The accents of leather and metallic stud detail further emphasise this. Practical as well as aesthetic, the Wayfarer provides both a retractable handle and two carry handles. Furthermore, the interior is visually attractive with a striped lining, and is surprisingly spacious.Farfetch have adopted this trend in force with a small collection focused purely on the modern minimalist man. Included in this new wave are the AL1390 unisex glasses made from blue aluminium by Dior Homme. Flattering for most face shapes, the thin-framed specs suggest both style and sophistication when accompanied with many garments.
This beautiful piece of clockwork craftsmanship from Ted Baker features a tan bovine leather strap. The stainless steal golden face includes 2 sub dials adding to the aesthetics of the wonderful watch.
The Thom Brown zip detail backpack is another stylish accessory that Farfetch stock for their new season. The sleek black exterior of this simplistic, minimalist design makes it a timeless piece. Thom Brown branding features above and below a luxurious gold zip and is reflected in the quality-striped lining. Perfect for both work and casual occasions, this piece is a must have.A personal favourite of mine are these MH40 unisex headphones by Master & Dynamic. The blue and silver- tone metal accompanied by lambskin features make this piece not just a classic, but a modern piece of art. Also offered by Farfetch, these chic headphones would compliment the Dior Homme AL1390 glasses impeccably.
