Jean Paul Gaultier socks for Christmas

Gifts inspired by coming fashion trends always communicate a level of knowing; you, the gift giver, not only have good taste, but are up to speed on all things chic. Picking the gift that comes from fashion’s luxury world only drives home the point provided, of course, that it’s the quality and not the label you’re paying for. So should you be a gift giver to whom such notions appeal, then’s 2010 Christmas gift guide ought to be of use in selecting such gifts.

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.
