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.

One particularly unusual piece is an eye patch that can also be worn as a headpiece or necklace.
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.
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.

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.

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.
