Flesh, blood, and drama: Sheri by Paul Morel

A bone-white horned skull and a cocoon of gauzy white fabric are the kind of props that lend themselves to adjectives like haunting. And yet, there’s nothing ghostly about model Sheri as she poses on the New York rooftops: with such a strong and dominating presence, there could be no doubting that she’s flesh and blood.

Paul Morel’s photographs are breathtaking in their composition. The cloudy sky is twice as dramatic in stormy black and white; a shot of Sheri from above has her lying in shadows, the white skull and naked skin the only things the light touches.

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.
