A subcultural tour of L.A: Vogue Paris

L.A has it’s own particular breed of glamour. Or several, really, if you count the subcultural differences, all of which are explored in Vogue Paris’ latest epic endeavour. There’s the suburban L.A housewife persona that Arizona Muse slips into as easily as if it were a silk neglige. Or Natasha Poly’s 70s folk-rock character who’s fond of suede fringing and the gentle strumming of an acoustic guitar. Or Freja Beha Erichsen’s band world of Fender Stratocasters and rock star fur coats, or Lara Stone’s rather dominatrix-like girl who hangs out, with odd contradiction, with the surfer boys and fitness freaks.

We did use the word ‘epic’, didn’t we? With 64 looks in total, Vogue Paris’ subcultural tour of L.A is some feat. But thematically there’s little to gel it all together. There are some great shots, some even better styling ideas, but you do have to do a little trawling to find them.

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.
