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.

Filled with action sequences and breaking into a first person shooter perspective, it stars models Joan Smalls, Isabeli Fontana, Raquel Zimmermann and Natasha Poly in slick outfits and don’t-mess-with-us attitude.

A naked nymph amoung the rocks: things you can’t have too much of

How often have you seen a completely naked, inhumanly gorgeous woman posing like a woodland nymph amoung the trees and grottos and supernaturally formed rock faces? The answer is, of course, not often enough. Because in the space where fashion photography meets art, you really can’t have too much of scenes like that.

Victoria’s Secret October 2014 look book

Let’s face it, any given Victoria’s Secret look book is as much about admiring the angel as it is about paying attention to the garments. So while the presence of fiery red bras and pastel pink bodices is one thing, you’ll just as easily get caught up in Behati Prinsloo’s sultry stares and bed hair. Though not literally. That would just be awkward.

Is Interview Magazine glamorising binge drinking?

Maybe it’s a deliberate grab for attention via the thorny path of controversy. Maybe it’s a genuine attempt to call attention to an issue relevant to a generation of young readers.

Backstage at ModaLisboa, spring 2015
