Collars and swimsuits

This editorial from Vogue Turkey is an odd mix of showgirl performance and sportiness. Perhaps it’s my inability to understand the title or the text, but the story doesn’t leap out of the images in any coherent way. What it does do though is captivate with some interestingly styled swimwear looks. Like a monokini with a cutaway collar.

While you won’t find swimsuits with collars amoung 2011′s swimwear trends, the boy leg bottoms of this monokini fit particularly well with the vintage-inspired theme that’s continued to dominate.

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.
