This is fashion: Camille Rowe naked

Things change, things remain the same. Nudity, sex, fashion: somehow it’s a triangle that these days fails to stand up without all three sides. That’s true for magazines like Purple Fashion, a magazine that often has just as much skin as fashion but that has the latter word in its title – leaving no doubt of what it considers itself to be. Purple fashion.

So what’s the continued justification here? What makes a Terry Richardson shoot of a full-frontal nude Camille Rowe, peddling sex instead of clothing, relevant to fashion? What makes it any different to a shoot in the kind of magazine aimed purely at men and stacked on the top shelves of service stations?

The difference is in who the fashionable girl wants to be when she takes off the clothes. While a sweeping generalisation, the short of this theory is this: the same audience who dreams of having the latest luxury products also dreams of having the sex appeal of a Camille Rowe. The likes of Purple can do a shoot with barely any product because they’re selling something else, something invisibly tied to the fantasy of the fashion world. And as long as it works for them, nudity and fashion will be intimate bedfellows.

As you will have already gathered, the photos of Camille Rowe in Purple’s 17th issue are really very NSFW. You can view them at the thumbnails above.

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.
