Minimalism and simple design was a prominent feature on the SS19 catwalks. Taking cues from designers such as Chloe, Hermes, and Prada, this trend saw a revival in sleek silhouettes and uncomplicated aesthetics to bring a refreshing twist to the new season's creations. Alongside a minimalist approach to clothing, this direction also welcomed new innovations in athleisure and casual wear.
The relaxed and fresh style of the athleisure trend blurs the lines between functionality and fashion with chic and comfortable pieces that can be worn from day to evening. Color palettes within the minimalist trend also offer a neutral selection of tones that add an understated aesthetic to a range of sleek designs.

Looking at Buying Your First Pair of Garment Project?
Garment Project comes in a mix of materials and colors. While the decision can sometimes just come down to a specific color that you’re looking for; however, the material will also be a significant factor, especially when it comes to shoes. In doing so, the decision will come down to suede, nubuck, or leather.
If you are the kind of person who just wears one pair of shoes for a long time, then go with leather. Our Tyre model comes in leather in two variations both in black. Garment Project Type Black Leather Sneakers with white sole and Garment Project Type Black with black sole. The leather will probably just last longer with minimal care.
Suede will actually require less maintenance as you just need to spray with Jason Markk repel spray. A leather shoe requires constant care and conditioning to be in top shape. Our Tyre model comes in suede in two variations while nubuck comes in two more. Garment Project Type Waxed Grey Suede Sneakers in light grey and Garment Project Type Waxed Taupe Leather Sneakers in taupe and Garment Project Type Grey Nubuck Sneakers in Grey and Garment Project Type Navy Nubuck Sneakers.
Creasing is one more significant factor with leather shoes, they age with the way you wear them.
As far as comfort is concerned, suede is soft obviously. Leather is stiffer. In general, you will hear that suede sneakers are more comfortable, although leather softens with time.
