An enchanted forest next door to New York

Far from the madding crowd – or in this case, New York – sits Long Island. Morfium Couture designer Jelena Malesevic tells me it feels worlds away, like a quiet country space that just happens to lie geographically close to the jutting skyscrapers of New York City. That much is clear, too, from Morfium’s shoot Refugium; the Long Island backdrop appearing as a refuge in both name and nature.

And the beauty of the locale is that it really could be anywhere: a house, a haven, and enchanted forest. Model Jefimija Jokic is fantastical, sometimes a mermaid, sometimes an earthy beauty, depending on the theatricality of the Morfium creations. Each image is beautifully framed and shot and conceptualised by Dusan Jaukovic – whose creative eye never fails to capture the fantasy behind every piece of clothing.

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.
