Victoria Spruce: heels with a literal twist

Shoes are in many ways architectural. Shoes house your feet like an office building houses your work space, or a garage houses your mode of transport. But the best shoes are not only architectural in a functional sense, they’re so in an aesthetic one. They can house your feet like a lofty villa houses a warm summer getaway, or like a plush hotel hosts your feelings of relaxed luxury.

If I’m to carry on with the footwear-as-structure analogy, I’d be concluding that Victoria Spruce’s shoes are like ultra-modern, ultra-cool bachelor pads. The kind that were built in the 1950s or 1960s with a futuristic vision. In soft peppermint or beige particularly, with their curling heels like cleanly modern winding staircases and their kitchen-appliance finishes, they’re like the kind of house you want to party in, even if not to settle down in for life.

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.
