Emotion laid bare: Sara by Niklas Hoejund

She may be half-naked, true – but in this portrait series by Niklas Hoejund, model Sara Maria comes across as less erotic and more haphazard, like her mind is somewhere so distant she forgot to get properly dressed this morning. There’s something sensual in that, though, in the wayward nature of being a little vague and messy-haired; of being a bit out of focus to the world.

Like all of Hoejund’s portraits there’s as much emotion as there is beauty. The thing that keeps you captivated as a viewer is the question of exactly what that emotion is. I see Sara Maria as I’ve just described, as a little distant, haphazard, exposed… but the magic of this type of portraiture – in which the subject is laid bare in more ways than one – is that everyone will read it differently.

Noah Kanber styled the uncomplicated black pieces for the shoot, while Sabrina Szinay created the wispy up-do and Stine Rasmussen applied the unfussy beauty look. The full shoot by Niklas Hoejlund (niklashoejlund.com) for Bambi Magazine (bambimagazine.com) can be seen by visiting 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.
