The noir anti-hero: Andres Velencoso

This is a men’s editorial that does sharp without being corporate and dangerous without getting too close to the edge. It’s all wearable, and strongly masculine as styled by Chabela Garcia.

But the Hunter & Gatti photographed shoot stands out for more than that. Model Andrés Velencoso is dirty, smudged with grease, his hands are bloodied and he has a Roy Batty “tears in rain” moment with a captured dove. Every frame is dramatic, cinematic.

The Spaniard’s chiselled jaw and 5 o’clock shadow make the long coats and tall boots all the more appealing. But even sans those, it’s styling inspiration for any man wanting to fit the dark, handsome stranger bill.

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.
