Coffins and candelabra make for a grim but gorgeous shoot

Ravens, coffins, candelabra… If we had to hazard a guess, Koray Parlak’s latest shoot is channeling fall 2012 fashion‘s love of the Gothic, awakening dark thoughts and reminiscing on grim childhood tales in the process. The blonde milkmaid braids and graphic white-on-black eyemakeup – matched with deep red lips – are brooding evil queen all over, but Cristina Cosentino’s fashion direction makes sure that this is a stylish and fresh fairytale character in every scene. Stunning model Aspen St. plays the lead.

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.
