Off duty comfort and style

Models spend a lot of time travelling, running from show to show, and living out of suitcases. So seeing how an off-duty model turns a comfortable outfit into a stylish one is always a lesson. Packing black pieces means you can’t be stuck with items that don’t match, but the key is to keep those pieces interesting. A leather top and skirt with pleated panels – though both black – do just that.

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.
