Codie Young is the rope-bound secretary

Fifty Shades of Grey may have bolstered hardware store sales of rope, but this shoot from Schön! Magazine‘s 19th issue hints at the 2002 film starring Maggie Gyllenhaal: both take the title Secretary.

Codie Young stars as the girl being dominated in photographer Billy Nava’s rope-filled fantasy. But unlike other shoots we’ve seen that dabble in the arts of Japanese Shibari (Lara Stone for Visionaire and Taryn Adreatta by Nicolas Guerin, to name a few) this one doesn’t incorporate nudity or gritty sexuality.

Instead the rope binding seems more a direct visual correlation to Sofia Achaval’s styling. The clothes are about restriction, refinement; shapes that are both tailored and structured and yet sexy. And if bondage can be a visual representation of a particular style of clothing, so can the inverse be true.

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.
