If you didn’t know that the TARDIS is a blue police box that’s bigger on the inside and also a time machine, then you might as well skip this post. The long-serving popular cultural phenomenon of Dr Who has clearly passed you by like a Dalek attack over the house of a heavy sleeper. If, on the contrary, you’re counting down the days until Matt Smith and his bow-tie return to T.V, you may want these in anticipation. Black Milk have released a TARDIS dress and TARDIS leggings. Time and Relative Dimension in Space… for your legs.

Geek-gone-sexy is not a new thing as far as the internet is concerned – the internet loves a sexy geek – but something must be said for the mainstream popularity of the rebooted Dr Who series in breaking down the barrier. Especially since Matt Smith took over: this is the man who was known to DJ throbbing electronic mixes of the Dr Who theme to pulsating festival crowds with sex-bomb Daisy Lowe standing by as his squeeze, while men Britain over looked on with envy. In other words, it’s not at all a stretch for Dr Who to be seen as both popular and sexy.

So rather than going against any preconceptions that the only fashion item Dr Who lovers are wearing is a 3-meter-long stripped knitted scarf, Black Milk are cleverly capitalising on something that plenty of young people will love and voraciously consume. The meaning of geek-chic has evolved, and it seems to be the smaller, cult brands who really know how to respond (Lazy Oaf another example).

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.
