Texture and touch

“Touch me”, implores the title of this shoot starring Zuzana Straska. Of course we don’t expect that the intention was anything too literal, as much as Emin Kadi‘s striking images do jump off the page. It’s reference, we imagine, to the fact that Katie Burnett’s styling flirts with tactility and texture.

From rough netting to supple silk, scrunched leather to thick blanketed wool, all of Kadi’s images play to the touch of fabric against skin. Both he and Burnett know that fashion is about more than how clothes look – it’s how they feel.

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.
