neuBohemian Style Collective
The look typifies a style of dress inspired by the lifestyle of free spirits and hippies of the 1960s and 1970s, and even the pre-Raphaelite women of the late 19th century. The Boho style is characterized by long flowing or tiered skirts and dresses, peasant blouses, ethnic touches like tunics or wood jewelry, embroidery or embellishment with beading, fringed handbags, and jeweled or embellished flat sandals (or flat ankle boots). The look is often layered and colorful.
neuMinimalist Style Collective
The look is mostly centered around simple and basic, but there is nothing basic about minimalist fashion. The minimalist style explores the visual appeal of forms, lines, shapes, textures, and volumes. There is an underlying, subtle complexity to it, built on playing with different shades of the same color, different textures, contrasts of symmetry and asymmetry, soft and structural, the modern and the classic.
neuUrban Style Collective
The look is born of the street. A ruffian look that emerges from neighborhoods as opposed to fashion dictated by designers. You pull off urban fashion well when you reflect the tempo and feel of the moment. The goal is to create a blend of fashion and style that expresses the mood of the day. Urban fashion is edgy and reflects lifestyle, attitudes and individuality. Unlike mainstream fashion, anything goes in the urban fashion world and designers are not pressured into conforming to trends. Inspiration for urban lifestyle trends comes not from the media but from trendsetting individuals.
