RED Valentino: youthful charm

A little sister to Valentino’s main line, Red is built around a philosophy of youthful experimentation, borrowing influences from a wide range of people, places, eras. And spring 2011′s offering holds true to that mantra.

There are plaid pieces that Betty Draper might wear on the weekends. Crochet and flare-leg denim that are not so much straight out of the 70s as a modern, refined take on them. Lace skirts and dresses that sit somewhere between pretty and peasant, but either way have that girlish-innocence appeal. These are quality wardrobe pieces for the young, or the young-at-heart, always with a romantic edge and always with a sense of playfulness.

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.
