Josh Goot’s futuristic forms

Slick silhouettes and blocks of colour are most always the foundation stones of a Josh Goot collection. For spring 2011 there’s also a nature-meets-science theme to the photosynthesis inspired prints that work their way in amongst the blocked hues. Goot’s pieces in this collection flit between deep sea diver and futuristic femme, sometimes hugging the wearer’s shape, sometimes building upon it with rounded shoulders of voluminous skirts. The most impressive feature of the collection though is probably the quality and texture of the materials used. And while one might assume the wetsuit-like fabric to be neoprene it turns out these pieces can’t be taken at face value.

As Goot explains in an interview:

“One design story that people are confusing with neoprene is actually a viscose lycra bonded to a thin foam base, something we developed here in Sydney. I suppose these fabrics evoke a sense of sport and performance to me.”

And its that mix of sporty, fitted shapes with feminine details that makes Josh Goot‘s spring 2011 offering so wearable.

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.
