You are here because you enjoy a simple yet remarkable aesthetic, so I compiled a few brands you might like as well. Here, you will discover my top 10 minimalist brands. Characterized by sobriety, with the intent to favor materials over prints, to prefer quality to striking visuals, the fashion of the minimalist always has its effect in every outfit.
1. AURORE HAVENNE
Let’s no be modest here, I created my brand because I wanted jewels that I could wear with every outfit, for many years. I am thriving for this everyday, so here I am, number 1 on my list! I want my timeless jewellery to promote inclusiveness in society. That's why I want to create jewellery that can be enjoyed by everyone. I pay close attention to the materials I work with, such as Fairmined silver or gold. With the same aim of responsibility and traceability, I have also turned to lab-grown diamonds.
2. THE FRANKIE SHOP
When native Française-turned-New Yorker Gaëlle Drevet founded the brand, she did so with the intention of serving women like herself— who believe feeling good means looking like themselves. Women who didn’t necessarily subscribe to the codes and cuts of most clothes designed for them. Real women with real lives and an unapologetic sense of self. Modern and timeless, cosmopolitan and universal, done and undone, Paris and New York, masculin-féminin… Frankie does it all and for everyone. In 2022, they launched their men's and unisex lines, reaffirming their inclusive ethos and irreverent role in the global fashion marketplace.
