The minimalism trend is becoming more mainstream. As lifestyles become increasingly hectic and hyper-connected, dominated by an ever-growing number of electronic devices that demand our constant attention, the idea that ‘less is more’ becomes very appealing.
Why Simpler Can Mean Better
As part of this trend towards a less complicated way of living, the practice of decluttering is rapidly gaining ground. The idea is a simple one: by paring back our possessions to what is useful, beautiful or of particular sentimental value, we derive more pleasure from the things that we own.
Invest In ‘Forever’ Pieces
But the decluttering mindset also extends to new purchases, where quality is valued over quantity, and timeless style trumps ‘fast fashion’. It is a philosophy that French fashion designer Faustine Steinmetz wholeheartedly subscribes to: “I really buy into the idea of investing in something special,” she said in a recent interview in Salt magazine. “It’s always been my way that I would save and save to buy something I really wanted and would keep forever, rather than constantly buying cheap pieces, which never really make you happy.”*

Versatility Is Key
Gifts that not only tap into this trend for simplicity but also reflect a more sustainable, considered approach to fashion will be appreciated by co-workers, customers and business partners alike. The Swarovski range of jewelry and accessories offers a wide selection of stylish pieces that will be worn and enjoyed for years to come. Versatility is a defining characteristic: delicate, adjustable-length necklaces that easily transition from day to night; simple bangles that look equally elegant worn on their own or layered with other items; stud earrings that can be assembled in two ways to give a classic look a contemporary twist.
For business gifts that recognize achievement, reward loyalty or simply say “Thank You” for a job well done, be inspired by the range of elegant, timeless designs from Swarovski.
