Miranda’s body bared

There’s been another fundamental shift in the way the fashion world views nudity, and we’ve been noticing it more and more. There was a phase of the naked body being presented as raw and sexual, then it softened from sexual to sensual. Of late more models have posed sans clothing in a display of pure natural beauty that crosses over into the space traditionally populated by artistic nudes. If you wanted a yardstick to measure the flesh with you might look at 2012′s Pirelli calendar – a display of naked, natural and untouched beauty if ever there was one, and a gentle step removed from the Dionysian nudes of Pirelli 2011, which was itself a step very far removed from the raw Terry Richardsonism of Pierlli 2010.

This seems to be just an organic cycle that turns as the wheel of fashion does. And it’s one that makes nudity, now, a celebration of the human form (for want of a less sappy phrase) as opposed to sending any overt messages about sexual freedom or empowerment.

In the latest piece of supporting evidence, Miranda Kerr poses for a series of artistic, shadowy and generally beautiful portraits for the January 2012 issue of Industrie magazine. I don’t think I need to make the point about her post-baby bounce back or her Victoria’s Secret Angel figure… No doubt that’s said in dozens of other news stories, not to mention in the pictures.

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.
