Falling from grace

There’s a mildly dizzying physical sensation that accompanies a viewing of Nicolas Guerin’s shoot Fallen Angels. The fall is turned into a literal one by the downward views favoured by Guerin’s lens. But like any angel that’s fallen from grace there’s also a suggestion of greed or over-indulgence, of opulence and corruption – albeit a beautiful and alluring one. Marz Atashi’s styling leans towards rich, luxurious textures and dark colours. Nudity and hints of sapphic sensuality imply hedonistic tendencies contributed to the downfall of Guerin’s two angels.

These fallen angels don’t seem too distraught at having landed on the dark side, though, which makes one wonder – if bad girls have more fun, does that mean the fall was worth it?

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.
