Stopping by woods on a snowy evening

When the surface of your world is blanketed in snow, you know winter’s cold fingers are in full grip. It’s then that fur – faux or real, whatever your heart desires and your moral compass allows – takes on a whole new aesthetic. Between an enveloping fur coat and a sweeping white landscape the wearer can become as icy as Narnia’s White Witch; but in an embellished black cape and black fur-lined boots, she’s stepped out of another fairytale entirely.

Forget the Terry Richardson you’ve come to expect: this shoot is one from the lesser-used section of his reportoir. Eniko Mihalik may be the constant, but the usual props are traded for an adorable arctic pup, a feather-footed snow white pony, and a wise, pensive barn owl.

From the contrasts of voluminous outerwear and skinny pant cuts, to the Cossack hats and hints of bare thighs despite the cold: Julia Von Boehm’s styling makes mid-winter dressing magical and exciting again. You know it would be worth braving the cold if you looked this good.

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.
