The beauty about having a minimalist wardrobe lies in the simplicity—imagine not having to pick between a myriad of options for your outfit on the daily. The next time you shop, opt for seasonless pieces that will stand the test of time for its silhouette, colour, and more. Below, we rounded up nine fashion and jewellery brands from Japan, South Korea and USA you can ShopandBox for pared-back, classic essentials.
If Jouete’s Instagram account is anything to go by, let’s just say that its jewellery is made for the conscious, sophisticated shopper who loves nothing more than quietly stunning pieces. Versatile for the workplace and beyond, its minimalist merch can be worn on its own for a delicate look, or stacked for a trendy aesthetic. The price ranges from USD3 to USD540, and you’d be hard-pressed to not find anything you like from this brand.
This Korean-inspired label was founded by a fashion lover who decided to make stylish apparel and accessories easily accessible in Japan. With a neutral colour palette and a smattering of prints occasionally, the lineup will entice any minimalist, vintage lover and those who prefer functionality over form. Worth mentioning are the shoes and bags—chic pieces in unique shapes and materials to complement the sepia-toned aesthetic.
Handmade accessory brand Cope’s product range isn’t as wide as mass retailers, but the beauty is in each jewellery’s exquisite form. Take your pick from clear acrylic earrings melded in abstract shapes to silver shell pieces that would work well with your summer-ready ensemble.
With a Kinfolk-esque aesthetic, Korean bag brand One More Bag’s vision is very much inspired by “the small things that are easy overlooked in life”. Instead of the typical structured leather bags you’d find from artisanal labels, the brand’s star products are linen and canvas tote bags for a versatile touch. That said, we’re crushing on these nifty leather crossbody bags that would work well with almost any outfit.
Fantastic Planet’s aesthetic is two-parts feminine, one-part flora and fauna inspired. Made for the girly girl who loves blooms and delicate pearls, the label offers everything from red petal drop earrings to shell locket necklaces. ShopandBox here if you can’t get enough of the floral earring trend.
Fennec’s product range is extensive, with plentiful options for both men and women. Must-cop items include leather iPhone cases that come with handles that don’t look tacky, Airpod mini pouches in case you misplaced those tiny earbuds, leather pouches, half-moon pouches and more. What we love about the brand is the sheer variety of colours for each item, from salmon pink to khaki green.
As you can glean from Modern Citizen’s lookbook, the brand offers “thoughtfully designed and curated fashion, beauty, and home goods” made for the discerning shopper. Think minimalist pieces that look like luxury but come with accessible prices. Star pieces include cotton silk dresses, ceramic homeware to make great centrepieces, and chic footwear options that come with unique materials i.e. acrylic, tortoiseshell and more.
Don’t mind splurging on sustainably-conscious fashion pieces? Opt for Shaina Mote’s timeless designs that come with subtle details and an attention to fit and construction. All clothes are designed, developed and made in LA in partnership with local craftsmen. Rest assured that your piece will stand the test of time—both in trends and in quality. Our favourites: a 100% silk organza top that’s beautifully diaphanous and a satin-rayon bias-cut skirt for all occasions.
Founded by people who were burnt out by the fashion industry, Kindred Black is an environmentally focused retail project that offers “an unusual curation of luxury lifestyle goods that are eco-responsible, artisan produced, and ethically manufactured.” Working with everyone including seamstresses to jewellers, they revive pre-owned and vintage pieces to encourage reusing and recycling.
