Since starting on this journey to profile the best of the up-and-coming artists in the fashion industry, this is one brand we have been eager to rundown. Minoár is a very dark, avant-garde fashion brand brought to us from Bulgaria. The label mainly uses natural fabrics, such as silk and leather, to portray the relationship between man and nature; they describe their aesthetic as “tamed chaos designed in one specific direction.” The somewhat exact structure juxtaposed with the raw, unfinished trims is reminiscent of the Belgian greats. A grayscale colour palette maintains the focus on the silhouette and finishes.
Minoár’s latest collections for Spring/Summer 2015 “Unsullied” for men and “Silk Error” for women both have a wonderful juxtaposition of hard lines and delicate fabrics as well as more structured fabrics with jagged edges. While impeccable leatherwork is a staple throughout both collections, “Unsullied” also uses more delicate fabrics such as linen and cotton while “Silk Error” uses, as the name suggests, beautifully draped silk. They are also going to be using a paper yarn with the strength of cotton in the upcoming Spring/Summer collection; not only their use of fabric, but the use of innovative fabrics themselves, will ensure that Minoár will be a chief in the fashion community in the future.
