Tackling colour head on

Colour can be a daunting affair. The potential for clashes, for mismatches, for the purchasing of pieces that will end up as wardrobe orphans – great in their own right, but outcast from their contrastingly themed counterparts. In a shoot photographed by Henryk Lobaczewski and styled by Phoenix Keating, the dominant rule of colour is again proven: if you’re going to go for all colour, go bold. For the more fearless the use of colour the more the look will work.

With fair hair and matching fair brows, model Laura Gorun is a perfect blank canvas for a colour-filled shoot. Key hues of 2011 feature prominently: from rich forest green to golden yellow to the must-have burnt orange. From the clothes to the accessories to the bold pop of red lipstick, colour is all around – but never fails to work in harmony.

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.
