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.

Beachside bikinis & Barbara Palvin

Twin Set’s bikinis aren’t necessarily for everyone (let’s use the word “youthful” – such as it applies to a leopard print bandeau with shirred edges and a prominent love heart at its center). But then some models just steal the attention so much you barely even look at the clothes. Barbara Palvin is one of them, and her soft beauty works wonders for the youthful…

Manstyling in Paris: Esther Quek

With her unfailing ability to rock a man-style look, Esther Quek is well justified as a street style darling. Though sticking to a monocrhomatic palette, she made this black suit stand out by use of clashing stripes and checks, along with the finishing touch of a white flower lapel pin.

The classic grey coat: in Milan

A little bit of masculine tailoring for the girls goes a long way: a pair of tailored pants cropped above the ankle (or even a culotte) for the cooler days simply needs a roll-neck (hair tucked nonchalantly in) and a classic menswear-inspired coat.

Erika Labanauskaite after Just Cavalli

While I hazard to use the phrase “the next anyone” it’s awfully tempting to draw comparisons between Lithuanian beauty Erika Labanauskaite and one-time-model-come-actress Abbey Lee Kershaw. With sharply side parted hair and a chunky knit scarf, she gave an intense stare for this street style portrait after the Just Cavalli show.

Andreea Diaconu for Etam Swim

It’s difficult to decide which is more striking – her killer figure or her killer cheekbones. With both on display in Etam’s latest spring 2014 swimwear campaign, Romanian model Andreea Diaconu proves why she’s in such hot demand right now.

David Beckham does swimming trunks for H&M

It was only a matter of time before swimwear was added to the David Beckham for H&M bodywear line. And here it is, hitting stores in May 2014, featuring 3 styles – boardshorts, swimshorts and trunks. And of course, for all the Beckham fans, the campaign is modelled by the man himself: tattooed, topless, and wearing that trademark slicked-back David Beckham hairstyle.

A feast of lobster, latex and lingerie

When Hemingway dubbed the City of Love a moveable feast he wasn’t exactly talking about literal plates piled high with lobsters, clamshells and french fries (though – if you hit up google – you can find the recipe to his most beloved burger, a literary-slash-culinary legend I’m determined to try some day.) Still, it’s Paris’ openness to ceaseless festivity and indulgence that allows a shoot…

The gentlemen’s crossing: in Milan

Only in Italy would you be spectator to a scene like this: five gentlemen, each as stylish as the next, striding side by side in a sartorial whirlwind of cigars and hats and suits and coats slung casually over shoulders. What is the collective noun for a group of stylish men? I’m not sure, but what is clear is that just above the ankle is…

She owns the night: lingerie & Lada Kravchenko

A narrative of feeling adventurous, picking up the phone on a cloudy Parisian evening and making plans to take on the town. Model Lada Kravchenko goes from sumptuous black bustier to being bound up in the strappy wonders of Mise en Cage and a faux fur coat by Loewe in this photo series by Vincent Binant for Z!nk magazine. With green eyes glowing and pearly…

Restroom mischief for Alexander Wang

With Parental Advisory slogans and inversely-buttoned shirts defining Alexander Wang’s spring collection – as well as helping define the spring 2014 fashion trends – his campaign for the season was always going to be a little bit cheeky. With Anna Ewers and Zuzu Tadeushuk looking like their boredom is about to turn to some mischief, Steven Klein’s photos do well to capture a youthful and…
