Look for the woman

Cherchez La Femme. A phrase coined by Alexandre Dumas, it means look for the woman. Why? Because there’s always a woman at the root of any man’s behaviour. The allure of absolute femininity – laced perhaps even with knowingness or guilt? – is perfectly represented by Vanessa Traina’s ladylike styling in this shoot. Starring Kinga Rajzak and Daga Ziober, Cherchez La Femme has no explicit narrative; no action or controversy. But between Boo George’s romanticised photography – which plays with focal points and depth of field to beautiful effect – and the aforementioned feminine styling, you can’t help but get drawn in. And besides: the power of the influential woman is that she’s doesn’t need to do anything to cause an impact.

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.
