The cat and the sex-kitten

When the contrast is right and the shadows played to in just the right way, there’s nothing quite as striking as a simple concept shot in black and white. Alexi Papalexopoulos nails it in this shoot starring just models Lauren DiMarco, Brian Gove and a bewitching black cat. Papalexopoulos’ female protagonist seems to be playing a character as alluring yet elusive as her feline counterpart: with eyes obscured by a thick fringe and sultry black lingerie, she at times whispers to her would-be lover or at others turns away from him.

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.
