Faith in solitude

Each individual image in this shoot by Marco DAmico has a strength to it, a certain poignancy that makes it stand alone as its own kind of portrait. A foot coming out of a shoe feels disjointed, the white crumbled heel mimicing the cracked plaster around it. A hand, in black and white, not smoothed over or made glossy but with emphasis on every skin-etched line. And before any of that, a tour of the setting: DAmico makes us familiar with our surroundings, like a film’s first act.

But as for the actual story, it’s up to the viewer to fill in those gaps. DAmico called the series Faith, and the long robe-style garments – under the eye of Fashion Editor Romina Toscano – seem to hint at faith of the religious kind. Meanwhile the crumbling tower and whitewashed walls suggest that it’s faith which allows us to withstand solitude.

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.
