Life amidst the still life

Still life paintings have always gravitated towards particular objects. Fruit – blushing yellow pears, apples, clusters of purple grapes, if you’re lucky a pomegranate – hunted pheasants, flowers in vases and drapes of rich velvet. The setting of Denyse Rizzo’s shoot for issue 12 of Bambi Magazine feels like it could have been brushed on behind the models with oil paints, the classical application of those still life objects mixed with new ones. Giant perfume bottles, J’Adore, Chanel No. 5. A clock. Discarded lumps of dirt and moss.

In amoungst this painted scene the two models – lavishly and yet contemporarily dressed – look like they could also be painted. The whole effect is visually wondrous, so much that you feel like framing the shots and hanging them on a wall somewhere.

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.
