Her sparkling personality

There’s a scene in Die Another Day where James Bond fights the villain the old-fashioned way: in a fencing duel. It involves all of the usual elements of the James Bond formula – a girl, a diamond, equal parts action and suspense, and the ultimate triumph of good over evil. That scene inspired Akin Abayomi to create Spy Game, a shoot he both styled and photographed.

Presented in black and white to emphasise the fact that the line between good and evil is as fine and flexible as a fencing foil, Abayomi’s shoot merges the fencing theme with sexy Bond girl styling. In other shots the military cap layered over with a diamond-encrusted mask take their inspirations from another of the film’s villains, Zao, played by Rick Yune.

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.
