If there’s a reality about gratuity in editorials, it’s that it works best when it doesn’t attempt to hide what it is. Read the title image of this shoot from issue 8 of men’s magazine HERO, which gets straight to the point about the inclusion of Dioni Tabbers‘ assets:

TITS. YES. TITS IN HERO… IT’S OK, BECAUSE IT MEANS YOU’RE A REAL MAN IF YOU CAN LOOK RIGHT AT THEM. STARE THEM OUT. GO ON, THEY’RE WAITING FOR YOU IN A FEW PAGES.

It’s classic lad’s mag tongue-in-cheek: brazen, blunt, but really just telling the truth about something that would’ve been there anyway.

Plus the whole thing has a bit of a ‘70s-Playboy-bachelor-pad thing going on, right down to the roll-necks, bath robes, and double denim. It’s ’70s gone modern, of course, but the styling fits the vibe and the vibe fits the brazen admission of gratuity.

Photographed by James White and styled by Elgar Johnson, you can view the rest of the shoot (tits included – their words) at the gallery.

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.
