It is definitely easier to identify beauty in places where intricate labyrinths made out of contrasting prints, textures and concepts altogether, are being used to slowly but surely enchain the imagination. Harder to recognize but bearing an equally striking effect when done right, the allure of the understated sophistication hits a little bit harder, much like a blissful moment of silence acknowledged right after the noise becomes too much.

Offering an easy lesson on understated elegance, Lauren does simplicity with aplomb, styled by Prue Smurthwaite and photographed by Amani Faiz.

Envisioned mainly in black and white, and cut predominantly in clean, minimalistic silhouettes, the garments set on promoting timeless simplicity are often laid on versatility and veiled by an air of effortlessness, much as a sheer chiffon blouse, a pair of wide-leg pants, a pleated midi skirt, or a silky camisole top.

Complemented with soft, flowing waves, rosy lips and faint smoky eyes by Kristy Ferrari, you can check the complete set of images by Amani Faiz (www.amanifaiz.com), at the gallery.
