The dandy femme

Daniel Luxford is the kind of photographer that follows his instincts and does what “feels right”, he tells me in relation to his latest shoot. For him that means a certain rawness, shooting with minimal lighting and away from the studio cliches. Doing what feels right also means not necessarily following what’s on-trend – or not deliberately, anyway. But in this case Luxford’s gut instinct leads to exactly the kind of masculine-meets-feminine concept that sits comfortably amidst 2011′s fashion trends, from the sharp tuxedos to the subtly mod skinny ties and oxford shoes.

Styled by Carlos Mangubat, both the outfits and the sensual photography – beautifully striking in its high contrast black and white – have us enthralled.

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.
