Gucci’s deco: one style, many ways

Mariacarla Boscono might be the star with main billing in this shoot for Vogue Italia – in fact the shoot is even titled after her: The Outstanding M.C.B. But the best supporting cast members are surely Gucci’s Art Deco dresses, making their way into almost every shot.

The great thing about Patrick Demarchelier’s editorial is that it shows just how versatile these shining deco dresses are. All it takes to transform them is a little bit of magic with styling, hair and makeup. A micro fringed pixie crop and thick lashes places the Outstanding M.C.B somewhere between Liza Minnelli and Twiggy. A sleek shoulder-length bob keeps it classically ’40s. Full bouffant hair and winged out liner, on the other hand, is decidedly 1960s.

And sleek, straight hair? It’s a little bit disco, but very very now.

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.
