Rhapsody in white

If a 1920s revival is on the way, then this is how we envisage it. Less of a costumed take and more of other 2011 and 2012 fashion trends reinterpreted with a jazz age twist.

Elle Germany’s shoot Golden Twenties pretty much nails the balance of masculine and feminine, the balance of vintage and modern. In an all white palette the flapper feel comes down largely to the accessories, while plunging necklines on draping dresses and blouses, wide legs on pants, and a luxe cream women’s tuxedo jacket that perfectly epitomises the era’s boy-meets-girl fascination are all pieces that can be styled outside of the era as well.

Styled by Kathrin Seidel and photographed by Pasquale Abbattista, this is a shoot worth keeping handy for inspiration on creating a modern 20s look, right down to the messy take on the era’s waved bob.

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.
