Karlie Kloss for Americana Manhasset: silent and cinematic

If you couldn’t tell from the behind the scenes photos of Karlie Kloss we posted earlier, Americana Manhasset have a finger on the pulse. Their model cast is of-the-moment, their themes are of-the-moment… Last season it was all adorable retro-kitsch to align neatly with the fashion world’s 1950s obsession. This time they’ve tapped into the 1920s.

Gatsby may be the word on film-goer lips in anticipation of Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming take, but let’s not forget that The Artist swept the Oscars with 5 awards – the first silent film to hold that claim in decades. And so, Americana Manhasset’s cinematic fall 2012 catalogue channels not the opulent decay of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s world, but the untarnished glamour of the silent screen.

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.
