Candice: the urban sportsgirl

The new go-to girl for sports-themed shoots?

Candice Swanepoel maintains the toned, tanned limbs to pull off that title – one of the many upsides to having a contract with Victoria’s Secret, one would suppose. Last time it was a shoot by Terry Richardson for Harper’s Bazaar, now it’s this particularly bronzed looking photo series for February’s issue of Vogue China.

Alastair McKimm’s styling adheres closely to the shoot’s title of Urban Sports: a black and white palette broken up by bursts of bright orange, textured sports mesh and neoprene, zips, utility buckles, figure-hugging cuts that allow for movement. Aside from some sporty high-heeled shoes, these are mostly outfits that would be practical to hit the gym or running track in.

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.
