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.

Backstage at ModaLisboa, spring 2015

It was a good day to be backstage. For one, Nuno Gama’s epic closing show was to include 80 male models, most of whom were milling about waiting for their call time. I was hardly going to complain about that. Secondly, Valentim Quaresma’s unique creations – intricate pieces of body jewellery made from clips and skulls and other curiosities – were being adorned onto bodies…

Mr Kate “The Elsie” collection look book

Rather than sticking purely to the mystical influences defining fall 2014’s jewellery trends, designer Kate Albrecht went all the way back to the Edwardian period for her latest collection. Inspired by Lily Elsie, an Edwardian era actress, the collection features matte metals alongside sparkling crystals. One particularly unusual piece is an eye patch that can also be worn as a headpiece or necklace.

Gypsum look book does classroom chic

Smoking in the toilets, thigh high socks, cable knit hotpants and plenty of attitude: Gypsum channels school girl chic with some good-girls-gone-bad looks. \Photographed by Derren Versoza, the look book features plenty of plaid alongside some cropped sweaters and relaxed silhouettes.

Hotpants + boots: things best left to models?

I’d love to sit here and tell you that absolutely anyone can pull off a tiny pair of denim hotpants worn in tandem with thigh high boots. But some combinations are better left grounded in reality, and that reality happens to be that this look is best left to long, toned, modelesque legs. By all means, if you feel game to try it, why not.…

Alexander Wang x H&M debuts in New York

The date is set for November 6. That’s the date that the world will go a little crazy for H&M, when the high street will be reduced to a collective Alexander Wang-induced swoon. Wang’s collaboration for the high street giant debuted last night in New York, where the Armory on the Hudson was transformed from track and field to runway. Designing for the masses didn’t…

Alexander McQueen A/W ’14 look book

The extraordinary detailing and ethereal qualities of Sarah Burton’s fall / winter 2014 designs for Alexander McQueen can be seen all the more closely in the collection’s simply photographed look book. But in the black and white palette, the practical hemlines and modern cuts is also a very evident wearability. Even the exaggerated voluminous sleeves and embellished evening gowns look magically understated.

Boy off duty: in Lisbon

With a large proportion of menswear shows, ModaLisboa had no shortage of male models calmly waiting, at any given time, for their next call. This model was sitting outside relaxing between shows.

Stylestalker “Cowboy Kate” look book

Sam Haskins’ iconic photo series Cowboy Kate was the starting point of inspiraiton for the latest StyleStalker collection. That said, it borrows more in name than in style: StyleStalker’s cowgirl is decidedly more modern. She’s the kind that wears tiny crop tops, eyelet-studded dresses, and all things made from lace. Russian beauty Anastasia Krivosheeva stars in the lookbook that melds feminine, cult-classic pieces with Western…
