This volume explores minimalist fashion design unto itself both as an object and from a fine art and cultural point view. Its text and images demonstrate how the fine arts have directly impacted important designers worldwide in combination with the cultural and political influences of each era. The book has more than 150 gorgeous images, pairing the work of the world's most important designers and artists in fascinating juxtaposition (Yves St. Laurent's Mondrian dress being the most obvious example). It's an amazing ensemble of imagery and information that will captivate fine art, design, and fashion lovers, who will thrill to the unique point of view and astounding range of visuals. Despite its name, Minimalism is a rich read and a visual feast.
