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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.

All black mystery: in Paris

Turns out there are multiple ways to create a mysterious look out of an all black outfit – and I snapped several of them in the same place a few minutes apart. The first was edgy layers, the second urban Zorro, the third consisted not of any sheer blouses or Gaucho hats, but of a beautiful face shrouded in a black scarf.

Fete Champetre S/S ’14 look book

Kimberley Gordon’s photoshoot work allows you to get lost in the sensual poses and sheer tulle of Fete Champetre’s spring / summer 2014 look book, all the while overlooking the limited selection of clothing. Who needs more than a few white tailored pieces, some bandeaus and boy shorts, when you have a set of images so grabbing in mood?

The white shirt against ovarian cancer

Cancer. The word itself seems malevolent, infected. The disease touches so many, directly and indirectly, in its multitude of forms. In Australia, one woman dies every 10 hours from ovarian cancer alone, which is why research into an early detection test is such an important first step in combatting the disease. The shirt I’m wearing in this picture is one from the “Unite In White”…

Barbara Palvin gets more naked than usual for David Bellemere

Though regularly donning lingerie and bikinis for various campaigns, Barbara Palvin is not the go-to girl for fully bared skin, managing to retain a sweet reputation to accompany her cherubim lips and big, doe eyes. So this shoot for Marie Claire Italy is probably one of the more daring ones we’ve seen of Palvin: beautifully captured in a tropical beach paradise by David Bellemere.

The elfin tuck and the floral bomber: Ava Smith in New York

A little gel worked into a half tuck hairstyle is so elfin in nature, it’s easy for your mind to be tempted into assuming it should be left to the cast of Game of Thrones. A blonde Ava Smith was rocking it on the street after Rag & Bone’s spring show, though, with just a pair of ripped jeans and a floral spring bomber jacket…

Off duty attitude: Svea in New York

“Off duty model” is as much an attitude as a situational status. As least you can easily believe as much when looking at models like Svea Berlie who marry effortless cool with a model physique. Way to give a cropped shirt and denim cut-offs a bohemian edge: plenty of jewellery, headphones, and a long-linen cardigan worn off the shoulders.

A naked body of jawdropping proportions

The internet has become kind of a wasteland for broken promises of things that will (not) cause your jaw to drop or your mind to blow. The real risk – greater than any danger of actual jaw dislocation – is that they’ll simply stop grabbing your attention. But still, if you filter carefully, you’ll some things really do warrant the adjective of “jawdropping” because they’re…

A haunting remembrance of Oradour-sur-Glane

Only those photographers who straddle the space between art and fashion are game to delve headfirst into the dark undercurrent of heavy themes; to shed away the glossy surface and create something beautiful from a place that pools with grief or tension or solitude. The approach is important, here: how do you allow yourself to be inspired by a dark event without seeming to glorify…

Urban Zorro: off duty in Paris

Someone once left me a comment on a photo of this outfit that simply said: Flyest. Zorro. Ever. It stuck with me because, it’s face it, that’s a pretty cool compliment. That’s the power of a black sombrero cordobés; a wide-brimmed, Spanish style hat. The one worn by this model has the creased crown of a fedora and a chain band that makes it feel…
