In Greek mythology The Three Graces each personified one of charm, grace, or beauty; in John Wright’s photoshoot of the same name, each one of the models embodies all three.

It’s a close reference to the Graces as they’ve been depicted in artworks over time. Everything about Alex Reid’s styling nods to the classical, yet is drawn from the modern – and the misty forest backdrop could have been created by a painter’s brush.

The most literal translation of all is a shot of all three models in a pose that closely mirrors Antonio Canova’s neoclassical sculpture: the models lean in closely, their arms wrapped around eachother in an almost erotic embrace.

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.
