Dressing with medieval majesty

If you’re going to hit upon a theme for a shoot that involves the most luxurious, most opulent pieces of the season – the kind that probably aren’t everyday purchases for most – you might as well go all out. It’s part of the fantasy of that caliber of piece: put it in the right context, and it doesn’t matter if you’re likely to buy it or not. It’s art. Chris Nicholls’ shoot Your Majesty does that brilliantly. A celebration of the Royal opulence that wove its way through the fall 2011 season, each image comes to life in the backdrops, the props, the medieval armour and fairytale forests.

Beautiful to view, and inspiring for how to style a look that calls to mind the Queens and warrior women usually only found in the gilt-edged pages of fairytales, you can view the full shoot at the gallery above.

It’s from the December 2011 issue of Flare Magazine.

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.
