Lingerie that would do Aphrodite proud

As far as classicism-turned-erotic-fantasy goes, Coco de Mer’s Aphrodite lingerie campaign takes an inescapable hold on your attention and refuses to let it go. There’s something in the mix of the model’s dark allure and physical perfection and the Vegas painted faux-scenic backdrops that together makes for more enticing viewing than if the whole thing were more historically faithful. It’s like Homer by way of ’70s erotica, an ingenious mix that sums up both the collection and the brand’s forthright philosophy.

Of course these pieces would be served just as well in full classicism mode, or indeed as modern boudoir pieces styled for a multitude of different situations and sins. The Aphrodite collection features sheer silk tulle with sumptuous gold sparkles, leather cuffs and belts, and bronze metallic accents, making the whole set of pieces luxurious as well as deeply sensual.

The goddess of love is the collection’s namesake for a reason: it would do her proud.

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.
