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.

A girl, a window & a white shirt

My comfort zone is the street. But the thing about comfort zones - whether you choose to stay snug inside them or face the clouds of gut-wrenching butterflies circling their borders - is that having the choice is a blessing in itself.

Wildfox summer 2014: Royal Romance

It strikes me that photographing a Wildfox lookbook must be a damn fun thing to do with your time. It’s like the models get told to just rollick around in the midst of some lavish tea party/beach house soiree/picnic or whatever else, while photographer Mark Hunter chronicals it all in beautiful, light-drenched imagery. And so, designer Kimberley Gordon’s heartfelt musings about romance aside, summer 2014…

What happens when you cross lingerie with mythology? Sexiness happens.

Long before the influence of shows like Spartacus and Game of Thrones there’s been something inherently sexy about mythology. Just think of the Homeric verses, peppered through with alluring Sirens, frisky nymphs and beauties like Helen of Troy. When a lingerie label like Ludique looks to mythological references for their latest bridal campaign, the results are about as sexy as you might expect and then…

The stark architecture and bold, explorative angles of these images speak as much about Finders Keepers’s spring / summer 2014 collection as could any words.

Mlle Mademoiselle S/S ’14 look book

I need help deciding: which to be more enamoured with, the clothing in MLLE Mademoiselle’s spring 2014 look book, or the look book itself? The white lace “mermaid” dress with its plunging neckline and fishtail hem calls like a siren, as happy to be worn with bed hair and flat sandals as with heels and red lips. Cutaway bikinis, lace-front shorts and halternecks have a…

6 gorgeous Easter-themed retro pinups for your Sunday

Before dismissing sexy ladies in bunny ears as flippant, know that I am of course aware of the significance of Easter as an event on the religious calendar. Yes I spent my Easter Sunday morning at a historically and architecturally fascinating Portuguese church, listening to mass in a language I couldn’t quite understand. Outside the pews the original message is, as with every major Christian…

LOA S/S ’14 look book

A garment always feels more special when it’s hand-made. Lidia Aguilera’s young label LOA features the kind of unique finishings and embroideries that can’t be found in mass-produced product: a mix of the folklore, traditions and craftwork from Aguilera’s home Island of Formentera with the freshness of spring trends and the cosmopolitan vibe of modern Barcelona.
