Dolce & Gabbana’s scattered approach

Some Dolce & Gabbana collections are so cohesive they’re practically strung together with super-glue. Seeing the fall 2011 collection styled into a look book, it’s apparent this isn’t one of them.

You might stumble across a full leopard print dress one minute, a masculine tuxedo the next, followed by an outfit of a plaid miniskirt and heavy black creepers, later superseded by a vibrant citrus print frock. Throw into the mix stars and stripes, fishtail gowns, fur boots, fishnets and cossack hats, and you have yourself a pretty broad mix.

Much like is the case of this campaign, it’s really the masculine pieces that draw the eye the most. Some suiting takes its inspiration from the masculine tailoring trend that’s hit menswear; some stick to sharply sexy and figure hugging.

In the fair side of the masculine/feminine dichotomy, it’s worth keeping an eye out for the lace pieces – in particular a lace jumpsuit that gathers in above the ankles – and bustling fur coats.

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.
