Liberation and restraint

As thematic trends dip in and out from season to season, one of the most fascinating things is seeing how different creative minds go about interpreting them. With a rookery of strict black and white outfits from various designers turning the fetish-in-fashion trend from spiked and studded to Helmet Newton-esque, this season it’s all about the balance of liberation and restraint.

A new take on the theme is brought to us by photographer Koray Parlak, shooting models Nina Reijnders and Victoria Lipatova for the December 2011 issue of Marie Claire Turkey. While the styling by Hakan Ozturk adheres, with brilliant effect, to the gasping corsetry, structured forms, and leather-meets-lace ideals of fetish as fashion sees it right now, Parlak’s photography doesn’t comply with the draw to be dark and shadowy. Instead, Parlak’s shots are as vibrant and sumptuous as the surrounding locations.

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.
