Longing for the sea

When we view Remi Rebillard‘s subjects, it’s often from behind glass or through some other barrier. The effect is that we become a voyeur; or the subject becomes an object to be spectated. In this particular shoot the object is model Haley, a mermaid-like beauty. With her long, spiral curls, freckled skin, and classical figure – right down to the ghost of a sea-shell tattoo on her arm – she could be a modern incarnation of that famous John William Waterhouse mermaid who sits combing her tangled curls. One can imagine she’s inside behind glass but longing for the ocean.

As with much of Remi’s work there’s a fetish element to the shoot. You can view it in full at the gallery above.

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.
