Colour plays in important role in Camilla & Marc’s spring 2012 offering… so much so that it seemed surprising for Director Errol Rainey to exclude it from his video of the collection. The video, which you can view after the break, is nonetheless adept at conveying the mood of the clothing, achieved through the mirrored dance routines and tinkling piano of Yann Tiersen’s beautiful Sur Le Fil.

Though you can’t see from the black and white film, the palette of the collection is rich, vibrant, and botanical. There’s a distinct cocktail feel to it all be it in an ultra-feminine minidress or a masculinely tailored silk-linen suit or tuxedo jacket.

We’re told the inspirations driving the collection were rooted in two of the most influential decades of the past few seasons: the 60s and the 70s. Strong, confident and iconic were the women sitting in the designers’ minds when they created this particular portrait: Ali McGraw, Bianca Jagger, Charlotte Rampling and Faye Dunaway amoung them.

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 Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
