D&G: snow queens & fair isle dandies

Imagine a log cabin on a snow-covered mountain. A raging fire and a mug of steaming hot chocolate (skinny, of course). Luxury furnishings. Relaxing music. Put on D&G‘s Fall 2010 collection and that’s where you’ll be.

Ok so I may be over-promising a bit, if you don’t happen to live on a snow-covered mountain already there may be a plane flight involved. Or at least a road trip. But D&G’s concept is strong enough to take you there in spirit; with fur trimmings and hairy Mukluk style boots, Fair Isle patterns and cable knits. The said knits take on many forms – from jumper dresses to gorgeous knit bodysuits; even hot pants get the D&G Fair Isle treatment.

D&G’s classic female dandy also comes out to play with her black neck-bows, ruffled white blouses, and slim-cut velvet blazers. Interesting is the styling of flowing chiffon with the Fair Isle knits and Dandy elements all rolled in together.

And all up – a collection that has us wanting to hit the ski slope. Or at least the luxe bar beside the ski slope.

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.
