2050: styles colliding

Amani Faiz’s latest shoot is titled 2050, but it’s not making projections of the date the world will end or anything similarly dramatic. No, rather it’s cleverly titled to imply a mix of the past and future; a merging of the fashions of the 1950s with what’s happening now and what’s to come.

To that end stylist Manuel Spiropoulos along with hair and makeup artist Nicola Johnson channeled the look of a ‘bored ’50s housewife’ but with an out-there twist. A black halter top marries a retro feel with sheer mesh pants; a black dress and seamed stockings are updated with ankle boots; leather gloves and on-trend sunglasses add an edge to a classic dress.

By contrasting the glamour of the ’50s with modern styles, not to mention a country backdrop that defies the protagonist’s (played by model Sophie Sinclair) city-girl look, Faiz creates an interesting shoot.

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.
