Think Silk

Black Silk Slip Dress over white ribbed tee. Lines/Manner cherishes minimalist thinking and privileges quality over quantity, as opposed to come and go fashion trends. Yet finding the right balance requires that some exceptions be made.

While wearing the silk dress on its own is a must, tee under dress is a trend that resonates with LM: It exemplifies the “less is more” principle by simply combining basics, timeless key pieces, and minimalist inspirations, without putting aside the layering ritual – an all year long favorite. This easy spring/summer go-to will be the perfect combination to put on high rotation, granting a certain ease as much as a positive nostalgia of the 90’s.

Draped Part I – Layering

Black and white layering for a high level of contrast. When it starts to feel like spring outside, but not enough to over-expose yourself.

The oversized slouchy sweater meets the draped dress and creates an “all in the details” situation, invigorating this balance of proportions. A pair of black leather boots is a solid advantage to this minimal ensemble.

That outfit is the first part of the versatility factor that this dress can offer.

Soft

Back to a new week, back to work, back to basics.
Monochrome outfits have to be ingenious not to be boring, especially when composed of bare basics. Keep it simple but significant.

An oversized soft knit is a must for these trans-seasonal seasons which call for playing with proportions. With the intention of confronting fabrics, combine it with comfortable and fitted frayed white jeans to ensure the highest level of comfort, requisite amount of sleekness and mobility… where edginess and ease are bound.

Elegant Nonchalance


Mixing black and white never goes wrong. A monochrome identity is always a good fit, whether it be for an easy weekday wear or to establish an elegantly defined and flowing silhouette. Wink to lingerie top and open-back. (more…)
