Spring racing reds

The colour of flames and fiery sunsets, of blood and painted lips. And – in the case of Lara Milenko’s latest shoot, in which urban backgrounds are not accidental but tied to the theme, graffiti and paint and stop signs.

The thing about red is that you don’t wear it unless you want to stand out. Doubly so when it comes to the high-impact styling by Lydia-Jane Saunders (lydiajanesaunders.com) in which details and silhouettes compliment the boldness of colour. Each of Saunders’ outfits is accompanied by headwear – perfect timing for spring racing carnival – from the more conventional fedora, to straw and floral constructions, to a red riding hood that couldn’t go unnoticed in the marquees.

Casey Gore’s hair and makeup work perfectly with the styling, the textured hair keeping the looks from being over-polished. Starring model Kailah Ng, you can view the full shoot by Lara Milkeno (laramilenko.com) by clicking on the gallery. It’s inspiration both on styling red clothing for spring and for getting your spring racing hats on.

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.
