Stylespiration: the gritty West

There’s an emotive grittiness to David Sims’ Wanted shoot that doffs its hat to the well-worn Westerns of the earlier 20th century. I guess it’s no surprise that the shoot, from the April 2011 issue of Vogue Paris, coincides somewhat with the Cohen Brothers-produced remake of John Wayne classic True Grit. It’s a very grown up, very tough, and very masculine take on cowboys and Indians dressups and one that adds credence to Emmanuelle Alt’s skill as a stylist.

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.
