Vintage inspiration: nautical nice, 1937

Nautical stripes for Summer have been a staple for decades. Most certainly since at least 1937 when Pierre Brissaud illustrated this cover for Ladies’ Home Journal. Everything about this look still works today: a cute headscarf, red lipstick and some crisp blue and white stripes.

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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
