Beauty you should just surrender to

Soak in the detail, absorb the mood, but don’t analyse it, don’t read into it: just surrender.

Don’t intellectualise the artworks and romantically crumbling bricks, or the way Maria sits like a painter’s muse atop an upright piano, covered only by a jacket over her shoulders. There’s no need to question why the red glow cast from neon coils overhead bathes her in a different kind of appeal; or why the slightest turning up at the corners of her mouth suggest a knowingness that’s both soft and strong.

All you need do is recognise that photographer Igor Oussenko nails it. And then surrender yourself with visceral abandon to the beauty and sensuality he captures in each image.

Gorgeously styled by Oussenko along with Eugene Ilina, you can view the full shoot at the gallery or by heading to Bambi Magazine’s 14th issue (bambimagazine.com).

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.
