Fahrani Empel edgy in Dew

Fahrani Empel is an Indonesian all-rounder: model, actress, activist, designer. One of her latest projects is CAST Eyewear (casteyewear.com), a label based in Bali that produces bold, fashion-forward sunglasses as seen on the likes of Lady Gaga and Madonna. The label also has a secondary line on the go called CAST Eyewear X Borneo which raises money towards efforts to save the environment in the forests of Kalimantan.

The new issue of Dew Magazine pays tribute to the CAST Eyewear X Borneo project with a shoot that stars Fahrani Empel herself. Shot by the Teuku Ajie, the editorial has an appropriately warm, hazy feel, as if soaring tropical temperatures are leaping off the page. Empel is styled by Maikhanh Bertrand with cultural clashes and edgy tribal inspired jewellery, fitting with the issue’s ‘New World’ theme. Naturally the looks are capped off by CAST’s boldly framed sunglasses.

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.
