Young Germany-based fashion designer Rayan Odyll is having a love affair with multi-tone prints for spring 2012. Finding their way onto luxe silks, these prints were “developed from abstracted childhood memories, floral motifs and Polkadots” resulting in an exotic mix that warrants the collection’s title: Cultural Limbo. Odyll’s peplumed, waist-accenting shapes have a certain femininity, while his accessories add their own exotic whimsy to the mix. Removable collars – also in unique prints – silk turbans and crystal jewellery, created in collaboration with “Seelenstück” by Lisa Eppel, are all in harmony with and yet vying for attention away from the eye-catching clothes.

Mohamed Gaff beautifully photographed Odyll’s look book, each shot set against a backdrop of clashing prints in complimentary colours.

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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
