The words "minimalism" meant various looks, including working girls in white shirts and menswear inspired jackets or feminist women in simple dress and Birkenstock sandals, yet one thing united all these looks, as it is a powerful woman, who is self confident and ain't afraid of looking serious.

This autumn-winter season comes with another look, titled nun style, which has no common with fashion world, as it appears at first sight.

In real life, nun robes with collars, massive crosses on long chain, white headwear- berets were main inspirations for lots of designers starting from the 1959 (style icon Audrey Hepburn who played in The Nun's Story) Even Balenciaga was inspired by the nun style in their 1968's collection, which featured wedding dress with long train and veil-hat, which looks kind of beret to me.

The post-crisis years offered Stefano Pilati and Victoria Beckham dresses. The same nun style can be spotted in Nicolas Ghesquière for Balenciaga collections. Remember Alexander McQueen pre-collection or Valentino short dresses with white collars, who look like nuns. Fashion is like a huge experiment, which always shocks and surprises.
