Unconventional mermaid: Naty Chabanenko

Naty Chabanenko has chatoyant eyes, such that when coupled with black liner that starts at the very inner eye and resolutely extends out past the corners, the effect is magnified tenfold. If there were such a thing as a feline sea creature perhaps that’s what she’d be in this shoot; where netting pulled over the face has the mermaid-like effect of setting the hair in immovable flat waves across the forehead. We’ve seen this type of netting a number of times before on the runway (remember Alexander McQueen’s spring 2009 collection?) but haven’t yet spotted it on the street. Who’ll be the daring one to make the first runway-to-reallife move on this unusual accessory, if it hasn’t been done already?

In this seaside shoot for Gravure, photographed by Manolo Campion, the beauty look and the unconventional beachwear – styled by William Graper – make for stunning styling inspiration.

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.
