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.

In the mood for some devastatingly gorgeous retro inspiration? Then look no further than Lonely Dot’s spring / summer 2015 look book, which features enough platinum blonde hair and winged eyeliner to set your heart aflutter.

The model and the melted sky: ModaLisboa

There’s a particular time of day where the sky over the Rio Tejo in Lisbon turns a rainbow of melted sorbet. The light may be dim and not ideal for photographing a subject all in black, but then, such an outfit really only serves to compliment the sky even more. This off duty model posed for me on day 2 of the fall / winter…

Flag-bearers & falcons: backstage at Nuno Gama

Whether Nuno Gama’s fall 2015 show at ModaLisboa carried much historical accuracy isn’t worth the enquiry. The collection – inspired by Portugal’s discovery era – had value enough in entertainment and aesthetics to warrant all creative liberties taken by its creator. What Gama put together was a cast of characters that included captains and crusaders, sailors and sea-monsters, even a cameo from famed one-eye-blind Portuguese…

Jen’s Pirate Booty gets sensual in Ibiza

Shot on the sandy shores of Ibiza, Spain, the latest imagery from Jen’s Pirate Booty for spring / summer 2015 is enough to make you want to skip town. Soft and sensual and brimming with bohemian allure; filled with lace dresses and cheesecloth shorts and playsuits that hang carelessly from thin straps; it’s the kind of gorgeousness you’ll want to look through more than once.…

Gritty pretty: Backstage at ModaLisboa

Some faces are just too perfect not to cause your lens to gravitate towards them, voluntarily or involuntarily. And some moments, when said face happens to glance up at just the right second, are equally so. This shot was from backstage on day 3 of the fall / winter 2015 edition of ModaLisboa, where pretty red lips and gritty army styling found themselves in a…
