Miami contrasts

Miami. You don’t have to go there to draw a mental association of roads lined with palm trees, glittering nightlife, and expanses of bright blue water surrounding the city. There may also be an image that springs to mind of tanned skin and pink bikinis, copped tops and rollerskates. Michael David Adams’ shoot Miami Weiss isn’t just a clever play on the name of the ’80s TV show, it’s a clever play on that notion of glamorous beach styling. Against a backdrop of white on blue (weiss is German for white), Don West’s styling clashes swimsuits with furs, bikinis with blanket capes.

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.
