Abbey Lee returns

While she’s been the star of a number of campaigns, Abbey Lee Kershaw‘s presence in magazine editorials has, for want of a better term, plummeted this year. That may in part come down to less demand for the grunger, rocker girl – after all, the demand for classic beauties has conversely increased and when the likes of Isabeli Fontana can work a Sophia Loren-esque look to perfection, and Arizona Muse could be a Lauren Bacall carbon copy, it’s no surprise the casting options are wider for the latter girls. It may also be a more simple case of a much-exposed model wanting to take breath for a while.

Either way, Abbey Lee is back in Numero for the September 2011 issue in a shoot that’s suitably dramatic.

Shot by Sebastian Kim in a brilliantly stormy setting, Abbey Lee wears outfits that juxtapose sexy and stern. If any two trends seem a perfect yet unusual match for each other its milkmaid braids and leather harnesses; never more so than as worn here.

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.
