Made in Melbourne: Light Years lingerie

Between lingerie that’s overtly feminine and lacy and underwear that’s ultra-basic and plain is a space where brightly coloured cotton is luxurious – sexy even. It’s a space that newly launched Australian brand Light Years aims to fill with their pared back bras, tanks and tees. Pieces that have enough detail to be interesting, and enough sturdiness to double as outerwear.

Says the brand of their customer, she “craves fuss-free lingerie that is a natural extension of her own confidently cool, understated style.” Though still limited in their range of styles, thus far that’s the aesthetic they’ve achieved. A brand to keep an eye on, Light Years products are designed and made in Melbourne.

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.
