DSquared2 SS11: preppy, masculine

It’s little secret that the female dandy – as a quintessential look – is one of my enduring favourites. DSquared2 gives us new inspiration for Spring 2011, creating some effortless masculine looks. Some relaxed suit pants and an unbuttoned shirt; chic chinos with a double-breasted blazer; man-style oxfords worn with socks; and to complete the looks (and complete them they do) some masculine accessories – fob chains, pocket handkerchiefs, a straw Panama. Where the duo’s designs entered evening territory the looks were tuxedo-inspired. Black, white, and frankly quite sexy.

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.
