Unique pleats and absolute glamour

The title draws my mind to David Lynch’s acid trip of a film plot, but the more likely inspiration behind Kevin Sinclair’s Mulholland Drive shoot is the street itself. Or more to the point, the LA glamour associated with it.

But aside from that glamour, which manifests in pristine blonde bombshell curls and red lips, it’s an experimental journey through the use of pleats: pleats as decorative elements, pleats as statements, pleats as sophisticated classics, pleats as more than just 2011′s now-ubiquitous sunray pleat maxiskirt. And therein lies the biggest appeal. The feature, which is from Vestal Magazine, throws at you unique ways to utilise the year’s pleat trend in ways that are both absolutely glamorous and showstoppingly different.

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.
