Going further and deeper into the world of meaningful clothing (and more), I stopped and went through every design signed by 32-year old Poland native Marta Maruszczyk for her label, Pulpa.
Far from the confines of rigid sartorial looks yet surprisingly structured and elaborate, the comfortable clothes made by Marta in her small atelier are as dreamy as they come to me. Loose silhouettes, soft fabrics, neutral colors, these are right on my style alley – take a look and let me know how you feel about Pulpa!
I tend to play it on the monochrome side of style – what may seem ‘safe’ for some, for me it’s an elaborate way to minimize the impact fashion has on me and my world. We’re a blessed generation – information is all around, even invading, we’re getting live streams from fashion shows around the world – can fashion get any more available than that? But how do you sift through it all?
Through all the trends, the cuts, the colors? Monochromatic is my answer. What’s yours? Pulpa’s Marta said:
‘It irritates me to follow the pseudo-alternative trends. And, although often it is related to the first point, dressing up, and no dressing.’
Every now and then I accessorize with a crazy colorful headpiece, a stacked pack of funky bracelets, colorful shoes or a crazy bag. But other than that, Marta Maruszczyk’s Pulpa boutique has pretty much all I need to dress up and down, out and all around!

From the perfect maxi dress (Max II – the very first picture above) in a fantastic shade of grey and a low back cut to the loose see-through turtleneck (Misty, second picture above), not forgetting the knee-long dress with unexpected back decoletee (Vicki IV – you’ve just seen it above), everything is carefully designed and tailored to maximize the versatility factor. Soft fabrics, unstructured tailoring, unfinished hems and necklines – so many details to marvel at and cherish: I dare you to find the same feeling in a fast-fashion chain store!
Keeping true to the minimalist style can be tricky as everyone turns to wardrobe cleansing at least once in our very fashionable lives. Rebuilding an all-year-round capsule collection needs careful planning and thorough self-knowledge, not to mention a lot of control! Whenever I’m in need of shopping control, I turn to PULPA and rethink my wardrobe approach, currently daydreaming about my Pulpa-exclusive wardrobe!

I would love to know if you have ever considered going extremely minimalist and if so, what inspired you and how did you do it (if ever) – also I would love to hear your thoughts about Pulpa and more similar brands deserving more coverage!
