Retro glam, far from minimal

Forget minimalism for a second: sometimes there’s nothing quite like adorning your limbs with the comforting weight of baubles and chains. To have your digits dripping in rings. To leave virtually no bodypart unaccounted for in a quest for the kind of 70s glamour that can only be achieved by excessive accessorisation, not to mention lashings of lipstick and full, bouncy hair.

If ever you were unsure of what 2011′s mix of modern and retro should look like, here’s an opulent reminder from photographer Mariah Jelena and stylist Andrew Zumbo. Starring models Grace Moore and Emily Thomas it doesn’t leave a stone unturned in its quest for glam. And yet, it never goes over the top either.

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.
