From boudoir to opium den

Last we admired Anais Pouliot she was the quintessential French beauty in Numero. This shoot for Vogue Russia could almost be an extension of that one, with similar poses, similar sensuality, similar use of nudity; except now Anais’ character has entered a darker realm. From boudoir to some opulent opium den setting, the exotic silks and kimonos are a running oriental theme through many an editorial right now. Inspiration for mixing colours and prints, yes; but also for the painted red China doll lips and rosy blushing cheeks; a makeup looks that’s a near mandatory match for the clothing.

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.
