Aline in the garden of Eden

Sometimes wearing a single item of clothing that’s perfectly elegant and understated, one that skims the body rather than clings to it, is almost akin to nakedness. Not in the sense of being revealing; in the sense that it’s not the person wearing the clothing, or the clothing wearing the person, but the two being one. This shoot by Camilla Akrans may be themed around ‘Eden’ – the perfect motive for featuring more skin (or fig leaves) than clothing – but Akrans chooses to buck the nudity trend and avoid that cliche. Instead Aline Weber is styled in those effortless, skin-skimming pieces that are naked in their approach to design.

None more so than this draped one-shoulder piece. Bar for the subtle theological symbolism to tie it back to the Eden theme, there’s nothing else needed but a bright red lip to turn a gown like this into a stunning nighttime look.

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.
