Swim calendar cliches done well

Step outside the realms of high fashion and you’ll find that most swimwear calendars are loaded with cliches. They’re the same cliches you saw in Sports Illustrated back in the ’80s and ’90, and you’re about to see them again now.

But Patrick Demarchelier’s subtle nod to the traditional swimwear calendar is executed knowingly. And with visual beauty, too. Edita Vilkeviciute works the crouching-on-rocks-in-heels pose, the glancing-over-shoulder-with-pert-bottom-towards-the-camera pose and, all time favourite, the bare-breasts-obscured-only-by-mesh look in the most contemporary and tasteful of ways.

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.
