The end of the world is a daunting and yet recurrent theme: and from the 2012 Campari calendar to Lorent Korstar’s brilliantly conceived Dark Athena shoot, it’s not one untouched by fashion.

And here again does a shoot pull our focus on the impending 21 December deadline allegedly drawn by the Mayans.

Is it flippant to capitalize on something of such a serious nature? You could assume one of two things: that the photographer simply doesn’t believe there’s any weight to the Mayans’ claims, or that it’s the purpose of any form of art to find beauty and purpose in tragedy, no matter how great. The fact is, if a matter is timely, it’s always going to inspire.

Shot by Santiago Ruisenor for Vogue Mexico, this series – shot in Guatamela – mixes a futuristic mood with an ancient tribal one. You can find it in full in the magazine’s December 2012 issue. If you believe the Mayan calendar you’d best be quick – you’ve got 21 days and counting.

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.
