Intimate rituals: The Lake & Stars

Rarely does a campaign captivate as this one does. Flick through the unusually-themed photo essay shot by Tom Hines, which acts as the campaign for The Lake & Stars‘s spring 2011 lingerie collection, and you’ll be drawn along through philosophical musings and imaginative affirmations. The title is Ritualize; and while the themes of communal living and rituals make for an engrossing image series, it’s of course the lingerie that we want to take away more than anything else – and as always the label makes the notion of underwear as outerwear a particularly appealing one. Unique this season is a signature print made up of the designer duo’s own fingerprints – an ink effect of being ‘fondled’ – as well as ink-dipped thigh high stockings and hammered silk slip dresses.

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.
