Strapped and sporty

Where once swimwear options were strictly limited, the bikini trends for 2011 and into 2012 span a vast gamut of styles. At one end of the spectrum you can find feminine, vintage-inspired styles. At the other, sporty, sexy monokinis with edgy statement strapping.

This stunning photo series by Antony Nobilo focuses squarely on the latter. Fabric crosses over, twists, turns, and straps the body with hugging closeness. The styling by Sarah-Jane Cook adds to the modern feel by way of edgy accessories: studded cuffs, layers of chains, leather pieces.

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.
