The most sensual images are often the ones that don’t give it all away. Their erotic quality is in every line of the body from a slender neck to the roller-coaster curve at the small of the back. Their smoulder comes from a look in the eyes or the strands of messy hair that fall across the face in a partial curtain of beautiful obscurity.

In grainy black and white, Lev Efimov’s shoot of model Katya has all of those things.

Black lace and bare skin are the only styling required when the subject is wrapped in unrepentant sexuality and confined to the heated climate of the bedroom. With no other creative team credited, it’s a case of keeping an intimate relationship between model and camera, and it’s the intimacy that’s what makes Efimov’s shoot so strong.

Photographed for issue 14 of Bambi Magazine (, you can see the full shoot at the gallery.

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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
