Venetian romance: ancient city meets new beauty

It’s often referred to as one of the most romantic cities in Europe. Why? Because Venice defies urban standards, crumbles with romantic ruin, whispers constantly of the impermanence of all things. Even when overrun by swarms of tourists, those watery canals feels somehow untouched by modern life. It’s for these reasons that this much loved city is most often partnered with classic beauty. Beauty itself is, like Venice, enduring and yet impermanent. But that’s all part of the appeal: when there’s a beautiful woman paused atop a Venetian bridge or striding across the pigeon-covered St Mark’s Square, time becomes irrelevant. Beauty and Venice have always been synonymous, it matters little if one is young and the other ancient.

Yves Kortum’s contribution to the 13th issue of Bambi Magazine is another to recognise the play to Venice’s timeworn charm. Sensually styled by Lydiya Avvakumova into classic black outfits, model Caroline Rausch soaks up the romance all the while realising that she’s become a part of it; a living, breathing, transient addition to the ancient beauty of the city.

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.
