Hard and soft collide in a shoot starring Liu Xu

Liu Xi’s fringed blonde wig and high impact metallic eueshadow alone have an inescapable hold on your attention, even before Lidia Aguilera’s styling mix of texture, colour and print works it’s way into your consciousness.

It’s a styling mix that combines the classically feminine with the edgy and fresh, and Papo Waisman’s saturated, at times kaleidoscopic, photography work does it the right kind of justice.

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.
