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.
A natural beauty, all things considered, is best left as just that. Don’t cover her freckles or hide her eyes behind dark sunglasses, don’t interfere with the way her hair falls across her face in salty strands when half-dried by the sun. Let the sand that clings to her skin be the most lovely type of clothing, and the soft expression that graces her face…
White pants are a gentleman’s look for summer – but one not every guy is game to try. Rest assured they are not that difficult to pull off; and the options for styling them are many. In Milan, Fabrizio Oriani wore a crisp pair of white pants, rolled up at the ankle, with a red checkered blazer and black loafers.
Vibrant deep-sea florals and plaid: two clashing patterns you might not expect to see together all that often. Merging the unexpected print combination with a deep plunging neckline was blogger Patricia Manfield in Milan.
Maybe you’ve heard of Sahara Ray, maybe you haven’t: born in Australia to a pro-surfer Dad, she fell in love with fashion and has – thanks to her bee-stung lips and athletic bod – already amassed over 300k Instagram fans. The logical next step: launch her own line of sexy swimwear. Sahara Ray Swim has just launched with a spring 2014 look book modelled by…
Never one to shy away from a dangerously short hemline, Anna Dello Russo proved (yet again) that age is no barrier when it comes to rocking a teeny tiny minidress. Cut away in all kinds of places, this Anthony Vaccarello number was made for the daring and the daring alone. Dello Russo, obviously, included.
We didn’t make it to For Love & Lemons‘ fall 2014 SKIVVIES launch event, sadly; but that doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in a little preview of the cult label’s forthcoming lingerie offering. Gorgeous ’60s inspired hair and winged eyeliner prevailed at the launch, atop lace-up corset dresses and cut-away bras.
I’m not going to lie and say the concept of this video – written and directed by Penelope Cruz – somehow blew me away. But if you’re in the mood for some babes in lingerie taunting a delirious John Kortajarena with aerobic dance moves in the desert, then you’re in luck. Agent Provocateur‘s fall 2014 campaign has you covered. Watch the video after the break.
The trend of mystical, neo-bohemian jewellery hasn’t diminished one iota over the past few years – so it’s fortunate that it’s near impossible to get tired of seeing it. Especially when layered up and brilliantly styled against fringed shimmy bras, plunging metallic bodysuits and lace dresses. Vanessa Mooney’s “Illuminations” collection is presented in just that kind of way, merging pure prettiness with unbridled ’70s inspired…
If you recall the Burberry Prorsum autumn 2014 show, you’ll remember it closing with a procession of heavy plaid blanket capes, each embroidered with the initials of the model wearing it. As for how to rock said ponchos in everyday life, look no further than Olivia Palermo for inspiration. A pair of thigh high boots, shorts and a blouse are all you need.
With For Your Eyes Only Part 1, Peter Coulson offered up the suggestion that there was more to come. Thankfully we didn’t have to wait too long: Rhiannon Tragear-Ragg is back in that classic car in KissKill’s sultry lingerie pieces, this time in shadowy black and white.
