Thurley: calm seas and fading rainbows

Australian label Thurley has become more or less synonymous with the kinds of intricate embellishment deserving of a night-time affair. These days everything from daywear to shoes and accessories completes the Thurley offering, but it’s still those embroidered dresses and elegant gowns that are the defining pieces. Thurley’s spring / summer 2012 campaign rightly focuses on the most stand-out of those pieces.

The collection takes the name Fading Rainbows, inspired as it was by F. Scott Fitzgerald’s debut novel This Side of Paradise. And if you look closely you’ll see some little 1920s inspirations shining through with the right degree of subtlety. Feathers, fringing, fluid silhouettes… all interpreted in a very on-trend colour palette spanning neon pastels to fuchsia and chartreuse.

David Mandelberg’s campaign imagery captures the mood of the pieces: it’s the beach but not in the glossy, sun-drenched vision of a swim campaign. It’s the seaside at its most calm, colours fading and the sky blurring into the sand.

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.
