Supermodels & bombshells: decade collision

Playing on photographer Mike Lewis’ stereo during this shoot was an upbeat mix of George Michael, Diana Ross, Serge Gainsbourg, Madonna, Brigitte Bardot, Sonny and Cher, and Morrissey. With only a little bit of squashing and shoving you can quite easily fit those performers into two eras: the ’70s, and the ’90s. And as those eras decided what notes poured through the speakers, so did they decide the underlying inspirations of the shoot itself, culminating in a modern hybrid of “90s supermodels and 70s bombshells” that starts with retro accessories and ends, inevitably, in big hair.

Under the careful eye of Dana Goldenberg, the shoot’s stylist, the two eras come together in a wash of bold prints, toned midriffs, and boldly coloured dresses with short hems. Meanwhile the hair and makeup by Earl Simpson couldn’t be more fitting. It’s big, it’s impacting, but most of all it’s glamorous.

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.
