Swinging between the decades: retro styling inspiration

There are some iconic moments on film that will always be recognisable, even if future generations only know them from the echoes of imitations and parodies and tributes without really grasping the original source. David Hemmings photographing Veruschka in 1966′s Blow Up is one of those moments. A brilliant recreation of that scene opens Nicolas Guerin’s shoot Swinging Fashion which – as you will surely have guessed by now – is a revel in 1960s styling and iconography.

1960s hairstyles – styled by Christian Attuly – play a key role in creating the authentic vibe of the shoot, with bobs and bouffants complimented by Daria Slusarczyk’s era-inspired makeup. Marz Atashi styles it to perfection, never once missing the important role accessories can play in bridging the decades-wide gap between the mid century and the now.

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.
