Making love to the rain

It’s erotic and audacious, sensual and uncensored, silent yet rhythmical, like a performance on repeat at a Parisian burlesque bar that you can’t draw your eyes away from. In a veil of falling rain, water droplets caress model Aiste’s skin like a lover, the act of being soaked in cool water becoming an act of passion. If one can make love to an elusive thing – a memory, the air, music (Music, sweet music / I wish I could caress, caress… sang Hendrix) – then Aiste can easily have us believe that even water is an eligible bedfellow.

And with that Pino Leone’s theatrical, inimitable, carnal and delightful shoot for Bambi Magazine’s 13th issue proves yet again that eroticism is born of more than blatant nudity or sexual acts. Done right, it comes down to emotion, distinction, suggestion and insinuation.

Coupled with the sumptuous styling by Simona Sanfedele and perfectly chosen red-lipped beauty look by Grazia Carbone, Aiste’s sex appeal is more than present: it’s palpable.

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.
