Defying the season

When the cold lingers and New York’s streets are lined with banks of dirty snow, you can bet most people’s headwear of choice is something wooly, knitted, perhaps even fur-lined. But seasons don’t mean what they used to. In anticipation of the head tie sweeping spring 2012‘s list of trends, an ethnic-inspired piece of headwear with a print in tropical colours becomes just as suitable for days filled with residual snow.

Worn with a warm camel coat and oversized sunglasses, this is mounting proof that turbans and headscarves are not only fashionable on any street, they’re fashionable in any season.

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.
