Free love in Fiasco

We could hardly expect a 70s fashion revival to pass us by without first pausing to take the time to recline on a velvet lounge surrounded by groupies and sentiments of free love.

Like the film of the same name Nicolas Guerin’s shoot Almost Famous works every 70s rockstar cliche – and does it to perfection. The location has a run down, stripped back opulence. There’s an air of hypnotic serenity, as if there’s no regard for the marching of time’s feet in this place, only for the beating of the rock’n'roll drum. And the styling by Katharine Polk is moody and authentic and sensual, from men’s leather flares to fur coats and floppy hats, it’s inspiration for both genders on how to work your ’70s pieces into a festival-ready rock star look.

Like the fleeting loves that Leonard Cohen alludes to in Chelsea Hotel (the lyrics which are quoted in the shoot), you can indulge in a fleeting romance with Almost Famous by clicking no the thumbnails.

The shoot appears in Fiasco’s The Color of Summer Issue for July/August 2011.

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.
