Staples, basics, essentials. Whatever you want to call the foundations of every wardrobe, you can’t deny their apply. While they may not have the allure of a Gucci embroidered jean or a Prada graphic knit, they are the building blocks to stop an outfit from crossing over from chic to freak… But oh so often do we forget to show these humble designs appreciation. I’m no better though, the amount of times I wear a white button up shirt under a sweat or knit but never think about what I would do if it wasn’t for minimal meccas like Jil Sander or Uniqlo. So this is my ode to the minimal and humble items from my wardrobe that have been forgotten about, just because they are a little plain doesn’t mean they should have to work twice as hard just to get noticed.
