Minimalist lovers will definitely approve this maximalist trend

The contemporary way to do modern maximalism IRL is to opt for clothes with sculptural detailing and sleek silhouettes

The modern woman already knows that fashion can be simple and elegant without being boring – as evidenced by the cult following for Jil Sander, The Row and Phoebe Philo’s Celine.

This Cruise season, though, a new wave of names are putting their own spin on it. From Bottega Veneta to Louis Vuitton and Chloe, designers are playing with fabrics, volume and proportion to add drama to minimalist proportions. 

And it’s not just confined to the runways. Scroll through Instagram and you’ll be inspired by the effortlessly modern styles of fashion influencers like Sara Crampton, Annemiek Kessels and Brittany Bathgate.

Why you should cop their look too: The easy to mix and match designs allow you to maximise your outfits – each guaranteed to look as effortlessly stunning as the last. 

Contrast classic staples with unique design elements – a black blazer with a pleated peplum belt – or layer with different textures.
