Light in the darkness

Akiss Paraskevopoulos‘ recent video Petites Gouttes De Soleil was all about the mood. It flickered with the obscurity of another era; the clothing more a contribution to the mood than the cause of it.

In the final photoshoot, however, the styling no longer frolics at the edge of the greater picture. Instead it’s beautifully captured both in detail and as part of the Gothic setting. Martha Dimaki’s styling knowingly contrasts the hard and the soft, be it sheer layers paired with heavy combat boots, or a soft milkmaid braid worn with Maria Mastori’s dark jewellery pieces.

If the titular drop of golden sun weaving its way through Akiss’ photos doesn’t woo you – though surely it must – then perhaps the dark yet feminine styling will.

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.
