Born to Run: Camille Rowe as the all-American babe

Born to Run, the whole album, was about longing, open highway, the amusement park rising bold and stark, the poets who write nothing at all, the ghosts in the eyes of all the boys Mary sent away. Born to Run is about that brilliant age when you know dreams don’t come true, but you still believe they might come true FOR YOU.” That description puts the essence of Bruce Springsteen’s seminal album into a few short words. Free People‘s latest look book aims to capture it in pictures. But this isn’t about running away from sadness in so much as it is a simple riff on freedom, a salute to the all-American girl.

Shot at Coney Island by Thomas Northcut, Camille Rowe – despite calling France home – is that babe swathed in stars and stripes. And what Rowe proves is that you don’t have to be born in the USA to channel Springsteen’s American dream.

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.
