London calling

What’s not to love about this shot: there’s the framing and composition by Mr Newton, which has an odd sense of symmetry and harmony between the red handbag and red telephone booth, the greys of the dress and the silver of the armour on the poster next to it. There’s the gorgeous subject of the photo. And then there’s the ease with which a pinned-under bob translates to a street-style look. Who would have thought that such a retro, Betty Draper-esque style would marry so well with a pair of tough aviators?

That charmingly ratty old phone booth makes me want to be in London sooner.

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.
