Caroline Trentini & the legend of Melusine

Melusine, the ill-fated water-spirit with a serpentine lower-half, might not strike you as an obvious source of beauty inspiration. But with wet-look hair bringing the mermaid back into the fore, paired with the fierceness of the warrior fashion trend, the present is more than conducive to these types of historical and mythological references. Caroline Trentini is Numero magazine’s Melusine, with makeup that’s a little akin to war-paint (only prettier) and outfits that belie her sweet looks with a harder edge.

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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
