BURO 24/7: Everyday luxury for the die-hard minimalist
Posted on 15 October 2016
Designing to the tune of the proverb "too much of a good thing can be wonderful", Singapore-born and Israel-based designer Gin Lee has claimed her niche in stitching together fluid silhouettes that's at once laidback, yet strikingly diaphanous. A monochrome and earthy palette offered up in predominantly silk, there are two sides to the coin with Lee's design code. Firstly, as a no-brainer solution to our equatorial heat and secondly, the belief that little luxuries — like the brush of oh-so soft silk on the skin — should be relished day to day.
Inspired by landscapes, the range of pared-back garments are fine-tuned with detailings of folds, slits and sheer panelling that drape with inexplicable ease — making for an effortlessly minimalistic ensemble. Our favourite? Hands down, the shirt dress in sandwashed silk that comes with a removable sash. Just think of it as a chic version of your fat pants.
