Wicked Magdalena this way comes

“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.”

Fashion editorials are rarely intended to be the stuff of nightmares. But a few carefully applied smudges of white on some darkly-lit photographs make this particular shoot truly something wicked, and it’s a purposeful feat.

Magdalena Frackowiak is today’s babe-in-a-nun-habit (a broken stereotype we see a lot of) only this time it’s not just a conflict of religion and sensuality. It is, one might surmise, a battle for good in the face of the temptation for evil. Those splashes of white are like the eerie marks left by a soul slipping away, like a disconnect between the body and the spirit that resides there.

Or maybe the soul has nothing to do with it. Read into it what you will, but the end result is the same: Aitken Jolly puts together a darn good shoot.

Anders Sølvsten Thomsen’s styling of haunting white lace, veils, high collars and a strict uniform of black and white can’t be faulted. Click on the gallery to view the full shoot, which is from the Autumn / Winter 2011 issue of Dansk.

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.
