Variations on the jazz age

The variations on the 1920s theme keep rolling out, each editorial picking up the tune and either stripping it back to the barest melody, or embellishing it with trills and turns. In most cases there’s a feeling of opulence that defines our vision of the era: shiny metallics, fluffy feathers, delicate fabrics that hang from the body – never cling tightly to it.

This particular take was both styled and photographed by Damian Foxe. Starring Sam Rollinson, it includes the usual suspects of the ’20s revival world: the art deco dresses of Gucci and Cavalli, the doll-like makeup, the black bob here worn with short bangs.

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.
