Lily Donaldson does war-time beauty in Vogue UK

While 2008′s revival of Art Deco glamour was inspired by goddesses of the silver screen, 2009‘s 1940s influences are something slightly different. Described by Vogue UK as being centered around oatmeal hues, faded checks, gingham and crumpled silks, the styling of their March 2009 shoot ‘Chocks Away’ evokes more of a war-time feel. And who better to carry the look than British beauty Lily Donaldson?

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.
