Glowing across the eras

The season’s 1950s subplot need not necessarily lend itself to the romance genre. Pencil skirt silhouettes and pastil colours are well suited to romance indeed, but as this shoot from Volt Magazine shows they can also be interpreted with a funky, modern veneer. Leather bomber jackets get an 80s twist with tulle and lace details; while on other pages of the same book a dress pops out in a neon burst, or a Prada hot rod skirt finds love in unlikely places with a cutaway leather bodice. The graffiti effect overlaying Jeon Seung Hwan’s shoot adds to the 50s / 80s clash.

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.
