When we hear that Benjamin Kanarek has been working hard to put together a new shoot, we know we’re in for a treat; and doubly so where the Haute Couture collections are involved. His work for Harper’s Bazaar China, which sees Marlena Szoka wrapped up in divine Spring 2011 couture outfits and shrouded in a soft mist, doesn’t disappoint.
When one imagines Haute Couture it’s often with an air of incredulity; a vision of artistic pieces that belong purely on a runway or in the pages of a magazine. But if Benjamin’s shoot shows one thing, its that the Haute Couture pieces from some of the industry’s best known names can also be perfectly wearable. The glamour of a plunging white Vauthier bodysuit paired with luxurious fur is a favourite, but also look out for Chanel’s gown of silver lattice, and the piece de resistance, a soft-as-marshmellow pink feathered piece by Dior.

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.
