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.

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. Gonçalo Pinto (@ We Are Models) 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…

What’s not to love? A novel trend, perfectly presented

15 outfits from Lisbon: street style roundup

ModaLisboa is as relaxed as the city it takes place in. Far removed from the madding crowds and breathless anticipation of the “big four” fashion weeks, it takes over a small corner of Lisbon with minimal fanfare and a chilled-out vibe that only the Portuguese can seem to truly master. The street style, for the most part, is reflective. From show attendees to off duty…

A backward glance: at ModaLisboa

Sometimes it’s when you see the back of an outfit that it truly stands out to you. Like this one at ModaLisboa yesterday: there was the leather harness detail, and of course the braid. Such detail just calls for an over-the-shoulder glance.

A woman’s destiny is to be herself

Touched by rising tensions in the Middle East, Filipe Faisca sent a message of women’s rights down his ModaLisboa runway. “In spite of all their constraints,” echoed the show notes, in a quote by Cristina H.
