Always greener: vintage inspiration

With its fresh spring green hue, ruched waist, and all-over gathered fabrics, you’d be forgiven for mistaking this swimsuit for a modern-day Lanvin offering. You’d be right about one thing though; that a full-breifed vintage style swimsuit is certainly a style to take inspiration from this year.

And the perfect way to wear something with a little hint of Grecian goddess, right now? With some striking solid metal collars and cuffs, of course.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
