5 of the best calendars to take you into the New Year

December 31, 2011

It’s the digital age, and printed calendars are missing from most walls. If they are there, they’re there for the pictures, not to fight it out with Siri or compete with our Google calendar. No longer an item of practicality, the calendar has grown ever stronger in its aesthetic value. Collectable, enjoyable, a rival for fashion editorials and artworks alike, the calendar can be so much more than a measure of time.

As we tick over to 2012 and start a new year, we don’t feel compelled to choose between one physical calendar or another – in the digital age, we can enjoy them all. After the break, you’ll find 5 fashionable calendars of 2012 for your viewing pleasure.

In no particular order, you can find our five picks below. Click on the images to visit the full galleries of each calendar.

Campari 2012
12 ways for the world to end. It seems a rather morbid theme for a new year, but in this calendar, Milla Jovovich is both the bringer of doom and the celebrant of life – drink always in hand. This one makes the list not in spite of, but for it’s unusual (and clever) theme.

Written by Tania Braukämper.

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.
