We all know it but we find it hard to admit, simplicity always wins, on all fronts, even in outfits.
The concept of basic clothing has taken on a completely different meaning in recent years: it has become cool. The simpler an item, the easier it is to match, the cooler it is.
The idea "Less is more" is simple, the phrase coined by the German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, was inspired by a principle: the "more" is obtained by focusing on the concept of essentiality (the minus). So at nss magazine, we decided to put together 10 simple and essential items that you need but you don't know yet. They will become your objects of desire.
