Anna Selezneva for Pierre Balmain: weekend watch

Brisk, repeated loops of footage played against a rhythmic, mystery-invoking soundtrack make this spring 2013 video from Pierre Balmain oddly captivating. Anna Selezneva stars with an anonymous male figure – a hand here, a shadow against the swimming pool there – perhaps it’s his eyes we’re seeing through.

Either way Selezneva is the center of attention in a micro-mini skirt and pointed stiletto pumps, running and relaxing in the grounds of some luxurious country house.

The collection was “inspired by glamour under the sun, notably the grand hotels of Nice and the French Riviera, the chic styling of iconic French actress Jeanne Moreau as seen in Jacque Demy’s classic 1963 film “La Baie des Anges,” and the renowned Parisian club in the 80s Les Bains Douches.”

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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
