Call it controversial, but you might just be captivated

To the religious, or at least the supersticious, partaking in any activity other than revered silence while standing over the bones of the dead may seem disrespectful or… inconsiderate. You wouldn’t wish to disturb the sleepers or unsettle the calm dusts of their memories. Still, one has to admit that cemeteries make for beautiful backdrops – this one both in spite of the crosses that loom over a stretch of picturesque sea, and beacuse of their very hauntingness.

Part of the reason gothicism and all things darkly romantic continue to capture the imagination is because – at the heart of us – we’re all aware of and fascinated by our own fragility. Beauty and life are both fleeting, and together, the time-worn stones and the living, breathing, youthful thing make for captivating imagery.

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.
