The leather mini that needs little else

An ultra-hot, ultra-short black leather mini skirt is liable to end up with either a hard rock-chic, punk, or fetishist bent. But it doesn’t have to be so. Proving the versatility of such a piece is Barbara Martelo, who rocks a black Alaia leather skirt with the utmost of effortless cool: she’s simply added a lose-fitting black tee.

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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
