A twiggy Abbey Lee

All those elements of mod 60s fashion we predicted to return are rolling in thick and fast. Rounded peter pan collars? Exaggerated false eyelashes? Tunics and brightly coloured frock coats? Yes to all, plus we can add a modern update on go-go boots to the growing list.

The addition of oversized accessories to this shoot not only make Abbey Lee Kershaw look like she’s living in a doll’s house, they also serve to amplify the Twiggy vibe. Proportions are ever the more warped when your purse is as big as you are; giving the impression that those must be twiggy legs indeed. And that’s a characteristic of mod fashion worth baring in mind; it works brilliantly when a little quirky, a little fun, and even a little surreal.

The hair, too, is inspiration on a now 60s look. It’s slick and side-parted, but with a hint of a retro wave.

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.
