Stylespiration: without the hard edge

The reputation of leather is usually one of hardness. It’s worn with studs and zips and dark dies, not soft little roses and pastel tones. And never has that been truer than with pieces like leather harnesses, usually fetishist and edgy. But as we’ve reiterated in recent posts all that is changing – and I couldn’t have come up with a more perfect example, and more perfect styling inspiration, than this pictorial featuring Malgosia Bela.

Taking the leather harness into a place of femininity and softness, it features leather pieces by Naza Yousefi that have been gracefully arranged with flowers by Hiden Floral Design. Kudos to Sarah Richardson for some truly beautiful and forward-thinking styling.

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.
