Raphael Young: shoes for galactic travel

I’m quite convinced that slipping on a pair of Raphael Young‘s Winter 2011 boots will give you super-powers… especially the intense over the knee pairs that have fierce names like ‘Viper’, ‘Sphere’ and ‘Jaws’. Young’s designs are functional art. There’s a deep sense of futurism, and an extraordinary level of detail and craftsmanship.

For Winter 2011, Young’s heels are faceted, structural… at times matt, at times crafted from glass with encapsulated bubbles of air or water. The materials have been carefully chosen – from French nappa to cashmere suede, sometimes Imperial satin silk.

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.
