Soft styling for tough accessories

There’s no requirement for a leather harness to be supremely complex. In fact, it can be as simple as hooking a couple of leather belts together and winding them around your body into a harness of your own (I do this myself on occasion – if you’re interested in some more detailed instructions on how to make it work, leave us a comment below). It can also be as subtly bondage-inspired as this Hermes example, which is ultimately elegant and clean, as 2011′s fresh spin on the harness should be. But while most of those new interpretations focus on sharp, tailored pieces this shoot from The Block is all about contrasting the leather pieces with all that is soft and gauzy.

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.
