Beautiful confusion: the androgynous Cooper Thompson

Cooper Thompson can usually be seen sporting a seraphim’s nest of flaxen spiral curls. With those he looks not only angelic but classical, as if sculptured by the hand of some ancient artist, or at least chosen by one as their muse. With straight, long hair, Thompson moves even further into the hazy terrain of the androgynous. In this shoot of Thompson, Lydia-Jane Saunders‘ styling keeps things fairly gender-neutral in it’s ethereal white colour palette and breezily tailored cuts.

Lara Milenko‘s photos play with movement and flow, occasionally cutting to black and white; but she always keeps sight of Thompson’s strongest features and presents something that’s less a photo shoot than a beautiful portrait.

With hair and makeup by Casey Gore, you can view all of the shoot – contrarily titled BLACK and starring Cooper Thompson – 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 Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
