Lara Stone’s Roman holiday

For a fashion editorial to really sell the product in it, it should do one thing: generate desire. And one of the strongest motivators for desire is envy.

The romance of international travel, of being far from the stresses of working life, may be less enviable in this globalised, accessible world than it once was in and before the golden age of air travel. But it still speaks to us, the viewer, if done right. Here it’s not only done right but adds another envy-inducing layer: the extraordinary proportions of Lara Stone.

High waisted pants and a cropped top is a combination perfect for a figure like Lara’s. Channeling the European bombshell side of 50s and 60s fashion, her Roman Holiday is more Brigitte Bardot than Audrey Hepburn, styled by Anastasia Barbieri with a modern day cool-girl – almost L.A-esque – twist.

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.
