Sophie Vlaming goes wild

There’s always be a fascination with the primal, the animalistic, the primitive. It’s like a dark corner of human history that we can never quite shine a torch to; it’s curiosity as to what we are deep inside when society fails to dictate our actions. So while the primitive tribal warrior hasn’t been high on the list of unlikely style icons since 2009/2010, that doesn’t preclude his (or her) occasional Editorial return. Enter Sophie Vlaming, in Wild Skin.

With matted hair stuck through with feathers and dirtily bronzed skin that makes her eyes stand out tenfold, Sophie Vlaming becomes a savage kind of beauty. Bar for the strong use of fur, the styling by Keiko Seya doesn’t leave much that translates to practical wear – but it does capture the imagination and the eye, as does Thiemo Sander’s photography.

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.
