Swimming caps but no bikinis: weekend watch

The entertainment value of this video is multifaceted. Mostly, it stems from how times have changed. In the 1950s a fashion show dedicated to swimming caps was somehow warranted. An adorable Punch & Judy booth setup – well, good luck finding Punch or Judy now. And passing up the valid excuse to send models in bikinis down a runway? Not likely to happen anymore.

Note the uniformly perfect models and, finally, the reactions from the crowd (or lack thereof). It’s interesting and entertaining viewing from another era.

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.
