Retro-print Bambi

Often the ghost of an era is evoked through silhouette, through makeup, through hair, through backdrop. In this shoot of Bambi Northwood-Blyth, echoes of the 1950s and 1960s are brought to life through colour and print. Nothing explains it better than a lemon yellow a-line skirt paired with a floral-print shell top, hued in retro browns and lilac; an outfit completed by a spotted headscarf. Other outfits of florals-on-florals, pastel colours and capriciously clashing pieces keep the subtly vintage-kitsch feel in strong supply.

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.
