The power of polaroid

There’s good reason why we’ve (collectively) become so obsessed with overlaying vintage filters onto digital photos: because real life is real enough. We’d prefer our records of it, our memories and mementos, to be romanticised. A photorealistic image shows everything, even the things we want to hide, while a scrappy, hazy, polaroid in its own imperfection masks our flaws. And fosters a belief in a golden age before our own.

Paul Rowland’s polaroids for the ‘Vision’ column at Ford Models have that faux-vintage romanticism. Or, in the case of this series of Maryna Linchuk, a faux-vintage sensuality.

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.
