Will we ever stop wanting more? "Harder, better, faster, stronger," those wily robots Daft Punk intoned some 15 years ago. But they were being ironic. The ultimate sign of progress -- and stylishness -- is doing more with less. This season, designers like Calvin Klein and Perry Ellis are embracing clean lines, classic shapes, and basic black-and-whites. Much like minimalist architectural touchstones such as Philip Johnson's Glass House and Louis Kahn's Salk Institute, their looks prove that there's something very chic and timeless and human about the austere and the restrained. So drop the frills, and experience the thrills of reconnecting with the simple.
