The coat of flowers: in Paris

There comes a point when a garment is covered in enough floral appliques to become more than a coat; a bouquet perhaps, or a garden. Outside the Dior couture spring 2014 show, this three dimensionally detailed piece was one of those things, covered as it was in flourishing clusters of orchids. The wearer paired it with Balenciaga’s cutaway boots to add a bit of edge.

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.
