Emilio Pucci: bohemian opulence, Fall 2010

I must confess, I am a failure at the maxi dress. Every time I acquire anything of full length it hangs in my wardrobe for six months, unworn, before eventually being brought out and hacked up above the knee – or given away, or sold. The maxi dress is, quite simply, not for everyone. But despite all that I can never cease to admire Pucci‘s long flowing pieces.

Fall 2010′s maxis are impressive. Some fitted with swirling bohemian prints; some of wafting sheer layers, complete with thigh high slits.

Rich colours and details like fringing and fur added to the exotic feel of the collection. Some dresses looked more like ethnic silk scarves simply wrapped around the body into minidresses. At other times Pucci’s woman was a Spanish bullfigther – in black lace, embroidery, high-waisted pants and cropped jackets.

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.
