The rise of the Roitfelds

The phrase uptown bohemian is used by Korean label Hanii Y to describing their style and from their autumn / fall 2011 campaign, featuring Julia Resoin Roitfeld, it seems to be a description that holds with some degree of accuracy. Like Carine Roitfeld’s also smokey-eyed, also effortlessly sexy offspring, Julia’s adherence to the concept of ‘bohemian’ is less about the usual cliches and more an attitude. If, despite their relatively safe fall 2011 offering, Hanii Y were hoping for that attitude to shine through, their hopes were met. If, in signing on Restoin Roitfeld, they were hoping to garner attention by association, they might have also succeeded; for the campaign did catch our eye for its star more so than for its clothes.

Julia Restoin Roitfeld has not just an effortless attitude but an almost accidental star power that filters down from her fashion industry mother. And it’s no wonder a brand that sells itself on ‘uptown bohemian’ would be keen to capitalise on that fact.

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.
