War story

Alexi Papalexopoulos’ shoot War Story may be styled with worn lace-up boots and an understated military green jacket. But the title refers less to the army-inspired clothing and more to the theme: it’s about, Alexi tells us, man being at war with himself.

The beauty on the outside disguises the darkness and conflict on the inside. Alexi captured this by way of intense shadows and a creeping darkness that permeates the photos, while the cold, deserted beach setting evokes a feeling of emptiness.

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.
