Thakoon: the essence of Spring

There’s something about a soft shade of lilac that screams, rather than hints at, Spring. It’s manicured English gardens in full bloom, an arbor covered in rambling wisteria; it’s a ’50s chiffon gown; iced teacakes and confetti. Paired with a palette of crisp white, nude and the odd injection of chambray blue Thakoon‘s offering for Spring 2011 perfectly conveys that sense of the season. But rather than being as polished and wholesome as my own fanciful projections of what the colour palette should be, Thakoon’s fabrics and cuts add an effortless edge – particularly where sheer and flowing. And that’s no bad thing at all.

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.
