Not so much a trend as a timeless tradition, we come to another shoot that pairs beautiful women and beautiful beaches. But the idea of highlighting one sun-soaked Goddess on a beach after another isn’t to make you tire of the concept – the impossibility of which I am quite convinced – it’s to prove that a well-worn path is well-worn with good reason. People keep going down it because there’s something worth seeing at the end.

With every creative team putting their own different and unique stamp on a shoot concept, the only thing that matters is if it’s done right. In the context of Bambi Magazine‘s 15th issue, the shoots sit alongside each other, perfectly complimentary to a broader theme. Divorced from the whole, they stand alone as equally beautiful pieces of work.

In this photo series, everything is strong rather than soft. Model Christina Mileva’s fierce expressions and poses, the sharp side-parted hair and cat-eye makeup bestowed on her by Slav Anastasov, the uncompromising styling choices by Antonia Yordanova: there’s nothing modest or retiring about her.

Such strength could be overpowering but photographer Igor Oussenko directs it with the finesse of an orchestra conductor directing a kettle drum. It’s used for emphasis and punctuation and to keep time over the shoot, at no time bearing over Christina’s femininity.

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.
