Double the Magdalena

One Magdalena Frackowiak is usually enough to heat up any photo to a tropical degree. In the shoot Dédoublement, Ben Hassett uses photographic trickery to give us an angelic host of Magdalenas. The duplication isn’t just a way to magnify the star power of the model; it’s basis is an artistic one. Magdalena becomes an often faceless clone, or a figure that melds with an artistic backdrop that matches the prints of the clothing.

In other shots she’s both a reality and a ghostly apparition, one unable to reach the other.

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.
