Beguiling bits and pieces

There’s something romantic about a photograph that’s been stuck to the wall with tape for longer than anyone can remember, dog-eared and torn and a fixture that’s become part of a room, imprinted with something so loved or at least so accepted that its subject matter outlives the raggedy paper it’s printed on. Though it’s pages are dark and almost look as if they’ve been left and forgotten, that’s what Michael Donovan‘s Bits and Pieces shoot calls to mind. The overall effect, the images like faded memories held together with black tape, almost outshines everything else about the shoot. I say almost – because underneath the scrap paper effect is Donovan’s striking photography and styling by Katie Burnett that’s dusted with edgy accessories, like leather harnesses that are unmistakably Zana Bayne pieces.

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.
