I-R-I-N-A

“I always prefer to work in the studio. It isolates people from their environment. They become in a sense… symbolic of themselves. I often feel that people come to me to be photographed as they would go to a doctor or a fortune teller – to find out how they are.” – Richard Avedon

With Avedon’s quote in mind, photographer Timmothy Lee set about shooting a series of photos of model Irina Funtikova. The results: a beautiful, natural, black and white studio portrait with nothing but the letters of her name as adornment.

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.
