Windfall in Athens

One of the most striking things about Fenia Labropoulou’s (lafenia.com) latest shoot is the hair. It’s a concoction of perhaps two parts modern and one part waved flapper bob, a kind of vintage glamour injection for the modern-day girl. The shoot was actually inspired by the 1950s film Windfall in Athens, directed by Mihalis Kakogiannis, a love story centered around a lost lottery ticket.

Accompanying Nicolas Balialios’ beautiful hair styling is equally pretty makeup by Margarita Moneda, and styling by the team at Celebrity Skin. The latter does a brilliant job of presenting an all black palette, never once getting dragged down by the weight of the dark hues. Instead the clothes shimmer with sequins or play with volume, hinting back to that vintage-meets-modern aesthetic.

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.
