Paul Smith’s Giro D’Italia cycling jerseys

Sir Paul Smith‘s cycling career was cut short by injury at the age of just 18; and while that inadvertently set him on the creative path we know him for today, he’s never given up his love for the race. Bringing both his passion for the sport and design flair together, Smith has designed the leaders’ jerseys for the 2013 Giro d’Italia – a cycling stage race which began in 1909, that sees almost 200 riders coming from all over the World to take part.

Paul Smith’s four jerseys are clean and simple but with his quirky twists: contrast coloured piping, signature stripes on one sleeve, mesh inserts at the sides and a neat trio of pockets at the back. If you’re in love with the idea of sportswear as fashion, then it doesn’t get much more literal than this.

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.
