Lace and dead leaves

As always with Nirrimi Hakanson‘s work, there’s a stirring of mixed emotion to this shoot that can only come down to a quality of youth. This time it feels bittersweet; the test subject, young model Yani at Australian agency Viviens, has deep pools for eyes that the viewer can’t help but get lost in.

The sense of youthfulness is also in the enviably long hair and freckles. Lace pieces like bodysuits and simple lightweight dresses are the kind of American Apparel fare that’s usually photographed in blindingly overblown situations, not the kind of gentle imagery of bathtubs and autumn’s fallen leaves. But, with Nirrimi’s photography, it more than works.

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.
