Before effortlessness was a thing to be engineered, photographer Ronald Falloon threw his denim shirt onto Jean Shrimpton and took these photos.

The photos were for the first ever Sunday Telegraph supplement but never ended up going to print. It’s clear from the simple tests why Shrimpton was such a celebrated model, bringing beauty with absolute ease to the simplest of looks. It’s not effortlessness engineered, it’s effortlessness full stop. A 1960s fashion icon, Shrimpton’s fringed mod bob is a style that’s found its way back in fashion today, making the release of the never before seen shots particularly timely.

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.
