Elena Perminova plays it down

It’s almost casual, particularly if you consider that just an hour before this shot was taken Elena Perminova was strutting about another part of Paris in a bright metallic blue trench coat and heels. Outfit changes between shows are all in a day’s work for a model-cum-socialite. And so a more downplayed look of slim-fit pants, Balenciaga’s cutaway flat boots, and a chunky Tommy Hilfiger braided knit make for the kind of outfit that would work anywhere, anytime, fashion week or no.

The thing elevating the outfit to high fashion, sit-up-and-take-notice status? The Louis Vuitton masked cap.

It’s hard to fault Permoniva’s outfits – selected perfectly to compliment her figure and blonde bob – and this one that she wore to the Jean Paul Gaultier couture spring 2013 show is no exception.

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.
