When to shoot black-on-black

The general advice when shooting a look book is to avoid black; the detail of black pieces is often lost if not photographed correctly. Even more precarious is shooting black-on-black, yet Indonesia’s luki not only dared – he won. A black background, a model (Vien Febrina) with raven-black hair, and a collection comprised entirely of black. Yet luki’s work for label Sapto Djojokartiko is detailed and perfectly impacting. The key – sheer fabrics and lace, the likes of which bare enough contrast against skin for the details to be distinguishable.

As for wearing the pieces? If you’re not as confident as Natalia Vodianova don’t despair – layering is a friend of the pragmatist.

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.
