Lessons in fetish: Lara Stone

What this Vogue Japan shoot lacks (to my eye at least) in emotion it makes up for in sex appeal. Lara Stone is the bombshell at the heart of it all, and gives off only icy stares that place her, strict and dominatrix-like, amidst the continued editorial theme of fetish and fashion. But you can’t fault her Goddess form or the way she carries off the outfits as styled by George Cortina. And while they may be outfits most readers won’t venture to imitate outside the privacy of their own homes, there are some practical lessons to be had if you look close enough.

The takeaways are in the versatility of the leather harness, an accessory with plenty of life – especially if you’re willing to invest in a quality piece. If you haven’t considered it before, a leather harness can be worn underneath a sheer mesh or lace top. Pair it with a sweet peter-pan collared top and you’ll be fetishising a mod 60s look that’s a mix of then and now.

Naturally, you can’t tone down the fetish vibe to a level of your choice.

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.
