Of late, minimalism has emerged as a highly popular discourse, whether in the domain of furniture, business or personal living. Surely, there must be a good reason why minimalism is trending — it’s not just a posh-sounding word thrown around pretentiously, it’s a way of actualising your aspiration for a better life.
How does it feel to open your briefcase, only to find a morass of cables and random things haphazardly strewn across the interior? We’ve been there before, and we can safely say that most would generally concur that it’s not a pleasant experience. The same goes if you return home to see your t-shirts in an unruly pile on your bed, and your office documents littering the entire table until every inch is obscured. There’s little to stop you from tearing your hair out.
A messy briefcase is akin to an untidy house — you wouldn’t want to step into it in its quasi-warzone state. However, this horrifying scenario is what your life could look like if you don’t get into the habit of organising your stuff, because with the micro level of your life in disorder, what more about the macro?
Take a deep breath and force yourself to start organising and reducing the clutter in your home. Start by arranging your clothes neatly in your wardrobe, allocating periods of time to distance yourself from your phone and observe the beauty in the little, everyday things. Find your inner zen by reminiscing and reflecting. That’s right, make minimalism your new anthem. We have.
At Faire Collective, we live and breathe minimalism. We treasure the importance of the details, with the belief that each and every one of them contributes to the big picture of achieving order. Our philosophy is to help you reduce clutter, while ensuring that quality, style and aesthetics are not compromised. Our sleek, polished luxury travel bags, leather tech organizers, slim leather wallets and leather accessories were meticulously designed in the spirit of minimalism — both inside and outside. We conceive our organisational tools from the perspective of what you would find most intuitive, to enable you to cultivate a knack for keeping your life neat and clean, to let minimalism be second nature.
As working professionals, we understand how the thought of placing all your tech devices into designated compartments all the time may be a daunting one. When you’re under the steely pressure of deadlines, having to make sure everything goes in its place may seem like a hassle. But by forcing yourself to get into the habit of being organised and tidy with our functional products, you will soon become dexterous with compartmentalising your work essentials; compartmentalising your life. It doesn’t matter if you start adopting the minimalist lifestyle through baby steps; putting your dirty laundry into a basket instead of shoving them beneath the bed, throwing out your unwanted documents now instead of thinking “Later”. It’s alright if you have not laid your hands on our minimalist Bond Collection luxury travel bags and leather tech organizers. It’s never too late to start.
In the long run, practising Faire’s lifestyle of minimalism will make you feel more in control of your life. The zen way of life is here to stay, and so is Faire.
