An unrefined nature and grains of female coarseness come through in this alternatively styled editorial from BAST Magazine. Model, Maja Krag, encapsulates a look that is complex and layered, revealing both elements of feminine shape and crude material covering.

The look exposes a new angle on a darker underworld, and almost biker-like fashion. Leather and tassels combine with ripped wool to create a dark and ominous image of a woman with an edge. Femininity with attitude. The styling of Ellen Loftsdottir plays with the shades of black and white, dark and light; allowing the material and skin to work with one another to make defined edges and stark shadows across the body. As does the photography by Niklas Hoejlund, making use of the classic dark or light back and foreground; allowing the subject matter to be separate and prominent from her surroundings. An attitude reflected through all the elements: fashion, photography, the hue of the skin, the wild nature of the hair.

Maja snarls, grimaces and frowns with a sense of defiance and insolence, the ideals of female softness lost, and rather replaced with a bolder more pioneering female form, one with a who can use her sexuality for gain and dominance, the progressive female notion.

Born into the humble town of Franschhoek, South Africa it was little wonder that Chevaun Roux would find her flavour in life through good food, good wine and stylish apparel. After completing a Bacherlors Degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics the world of freelance writing became the first choice in occupation, with no regrets and having never looked back. With a zest for anything with colour, vibrance and essence she found herself diving further into the world of fashion and design; from thifting vintage wedding dresses to pouring through new and modern jewelry pieces. This self anointed bohemian indentity believes in all the partisan revolutionary ideals of love, beauty and freedom, and when she isn’t writing or editing you can find her at the kitchens helm creating her latest milkshake masterpiece.
