To see a fine lady upon a white horse

There’s the kind of Western fashion that stomps along in heavy cowboy boots, dirty denims and fringed leather jackets, punctuated by a mandatory oversized belt-buckle at the hips. And then there’s this: a brilliantly, beautifully subtle interpretation that takes a select element at a time and slips it carefully, thoughtfully, in amongst a bouquet of other fashion trends.

Julie Brooke Williams’ styling is executed with a haze of 1970s bohemian romanticism. It’s in the long flowing hair, the wide-brimmed felt hats, the Navajo turquoise jewellery. The mix of eras and styles isn’t so much eclectic, though, as it is lightly unexpected. Like the layering of a bold red shirt over sandy suede fringing; or a floor-length, raw-hemmed coat paired with fuchsia boots; or a heavy blanket coat over a flowing skirt.

Everything in the Nylon editorial has a softness to it, from Olivia Malone’s photography to even the disposition of the equine companion – who seems gentle, almost listless, rather than war-like or fierce.

Starring Taylor Warren, Goodbye Horses is from the September 2011 issue of Nylon Mexico.

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.
