Way out west: Kate King

Part of the appeal of Western-style fashion is surely the sense of adventure we inherently tie to it. The things you can do with the weight of some sturdy cowboy boots on your feet instead of a less-practical pair of heels, the mix of unstoppable toughness and irresistible beauty. That’s what Aurora Sansone’s styling is romancing in this shoot for Vogue Japan, with model Kate King dressed in lace dresses, layers of turquoise jewellery, and a mandatory pair of dusty Western boots.

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.
