A red rose in a red dress

During a brief flirtation with red hair, I quickly discovered that nothing compliments it better than bright coloured clothing. Sandy neautrals and nude tones were relegated to the back of the wardrobe (the charity bin, even) with particular haste: in thinking of how they looked on, the words washed out spring to mind. As for what does work with red hair, bright red clothing is a surprise winner. In fact, I can’t think of a hair colour red doesn’t work with.

If you needed a case in point on the successful marriage of red-hair to red-clothing, here it is: Varsovian Rose by Julia Kiecksee. It’s also proof that, in the hands of the right stylist, there’s no such thing as red overkill. Red dress, red tights, red shoes, red hair…! With Helena Durda at the styling helm, it’s a fiery red fantasy rather than a crimson terror.

Against a cold yet beautiful backdrop the Varsovian beauty – Aleksandra P – is a red rose that grew from concrete. Michal Sadowski styled the beautiful hair, and makeup was by Koleta Gabrysiak. You can view the full shoot by Julia Kiecksee (www.juliakiecksee.de) by clicking on the gallery.

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.
