Shoes & books: objects of desire (video)

Books and shoes… Aside for books that happen to be about shoes, the two things have little in common. Shoes are both protective and aesthetic; books usually set out to inform or entertain. But if there’s one commonality that ties the two together it’s that they’re both collectable and as such become an objet du fetish to particular people.

This shoot by Renée Rodenkirchen brings the two things together in a rhythmic kind of harmony. Piles of books, rows of shoes. Both turned into objects of desire by the mannequin-like anonymous bodies.

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.
