A little drop of sun: weekend watch

In its flickery black and white, Akiss Paraskevopoulos‘ latest video could have come straight off some old film reel. That would be, of course, were it not for the styling by Martha Dimaki that gives an edgy, modern take on Gothic Victoriana.

Akiss gives us a voyeurs view of the subject, creeping up across a deserted cemetery, or capturing the model through ornate wrought iron fences and gates. The settings are a perfect match for the styling and the deliberately jumpy quality of the video, giving the finished product an overall dark and subtly Gothic mood.

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.
