Black Balmain and Barbara Martelo

If, during a fashion week, you spot a Balmain skirt that’s as short, sharp and dangerous as a concealed weapon, odds are it will belong to Barbara Martelo. She’s a living paradigm of the adage that if you find something that works for you, stick to it: and the leg-baring Balmain silhouettes are certainly a style that works for her.

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.
