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.
Tom Ford’s expertise has always laid in an ability to embody pure luxury. The campaign for his latest Black Orchid fragrance release does it yet again, with Cara Delevingne bathing nude in darkly lit water surrounded by purple orchids.

Every collection from For Love & Lemons brings something desirable in that cultish, cool-girl way. For fall / winter 2014 it’s an indulgence of that trend we called for summer and noted would carry into fall: cowgirl chic. The collection takes it back to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a place the brand’s founders were born and raised, with model Ashlee Rose donning florals to white lace…
One piece, multiple ways of wearing: Fabrizio Oriani wore white pants matched with checks on one day of Milan men’s fashion week, and then mixed it up with a striped blazer on another. If you thought white pants for men weren’t all that versatile, think again.
