Multi-faceted, modernist clutches: Baguera

The modernist mosaic of laser-cut vectors that makes up each Baguera clutch could have you drawing associations with any number of things. Origami folds, Art Deco geometries, pieces of a futurist puzzle… Call me a 12 year old boy, but I can’t help but see the Transformers logo sleeping within their fragmented shapes.

Like those transforming giants of cartoon Mecha, the Baguera clutches have movement and flexibility of form. They may not transform completely, but their shape will morph and change with the contents within, the soft faux-leather underneath their armour fragments allowing them the freedom of flexibility.

Baguera liken the multi-faceted quality of the pieces to the multi-faceted personality of the modern woman; the bold colours (cobalt blue, fuchsia, lime) to her desire to stand out. The modern-day woman “faces no taboos” and, amidst the harsh urban jungle, the clutches are like “graffiti on an industrial factory wall.”

If you didn’t already guess, the name of the collection is a portmanteau. Like the laser-cut shapes that armour each clutch, the words fall together like pieces of a puzzle: ‘vector’ and ‘victory’. VECTORY.

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.
