Daily discovery: House of Sunny

Sexed-up vintage. That’s how House of Sunny’s 2011 lookbook was described to me when it landed in my inbox, along with the prediction that I’d be smitten (thanks for the heads up, Allan). Not far wrong. Not least do I love a discovery, but I love the ability for something to be both wearable and a statement. In building up a curated wardrobe, in culling the average and keeping the stand-out, we need a few good statement pieces. And House of Sunny has huge potential in that area.

Number one piece in my book is this dress: a corseted variant of the places the sheer trend got to on the fall 2011 runways. It’s like Louis Vuitton’s kinky sheer skirts, only interpreted for greater wearability. This bubbly little umbrella of sheer black fabric topped by a modern print is one I’d gladly welcome into my wardrobe.

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.
