Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it, wrote simplicity guru Joshua Becker, and it’s everything this photoshoot represents. Sydney based fashion photographer Natalia Horinkova teamed up with stylist Andy Csinger for a beautifully minimalistic story featuring model Merille Raagas. The wardrobe is classic, uncomplicated, unpretentious and pure as the freshly fallen snow. Fashion doesn’t get any more serene than this. Crisp white oversized tops, worn over breezy Birkenstocks and smart summer leather keep these simple looks from being anything but boring. For the first time in ages fashion and comfort have reached an understanding, and the combination is more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. A special thank you to Victoria Anderson for hair and makeup.
