Eniko Mihalik & the challenge for print

The debate about the future of print rears its head with regularity. Some will say that the print magazine is dead. Not dead, we would argue – but forced to evolve and work hard to stay relevant. Case in point: this editorial of Eniko Mihalik dripping with diamonds, created by photographer and filmmaker Sebastian Faena. The latter adjective may give you a hint as to what’s so special about it: rather than just still photography, this photo spread sees Eniko sensually animated in selected frames.

The usual formats of pictures or video are one thing, but this subtle envelope-pusher – featured on Nowness and taking nudity in fashion to a new level – is another realm entirely. It’s enigmatic. It’s magical. It’s what we imagine publications of the future might look like… where images animate seamlessly like the portraits in a Harry Potter film, where photos and video become one. And that, like it or not, is something that the format of print does not allow for.

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.
