Deco Miss Kloss

A traditional suit with Dadaist details, bare deltoids as the latest “artsy-girl erogenous zone”, and a painter’s palette of colours that “haven’t been cool for about 30 years”, declared now to be (almost perversely) chic. Vogue US’s Modern Art shoot is determined to intellectualise the cross-over of today’s modern art and modernism as it was in the early half of the 20th century. Really though all eyes are on Karlie Kloss and her Art Deco inspired outfits, sharp short fringe and array of luxurious accessories that include opera-length gloves, head wraps, envelope clutches and oversized pendant necklaces.

Camilla Nickerson’s styling hits the right balance of being interesting as an editorial, yet easy to borrow ideas from. Photographed by Mario Sorrenti, the shoot is from the March 2012 issue of US Vogue.

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.
