Inside Instagram: Irene Noren


Irene Noren — @irenenoren — is a Spanish stewardess and fashion blogger, based in Valencia. Today we catch up with Irene to take a closer look at her beautiful Instagram collection and incredible style, and how this collection has developed into a consistently minimalist aesthetic.

What is the inspiration behind your minimalist photo collection?
I love the balance and harmony in minimalism. I adopt it to my lifestyle and in the way I dress, and that's what I try to convey in the photos I capture. I also think that simplicity is the best way to live.

How does your surroundings impact your creativity?
My daily life is stressful enough, but I always look for that simplicity in the chaos in which our society lives — that's what inspires me, finding the harmony in the chaos.

When and how do you decide to take a photo?
There is not always a good moment to capture a photo, but when I see something pure white for instance, such as a building or a piece of clothing, capturing that moment is a must.

What is your favourite quote on minimalism?
"Simplicity is complex. It's never simple to keep things simple. Simple solutions require the most advanced thinking." — Richie Norton
