The alternative gentleman eccentric

Some people have a sense of personal style that’s so unique and so perfectly suited to them that you can’t help but stop and take notice. It’s the kind of style that evolves and grows with the person, the kind that tells something of their personality even before they open their mouth to speak. This quirky, eccentric gent spotted in Milan had that kind of singular look about him; a unique mix of gentlemanly dapperness and punkishly modern detail.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person.

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.
