Metamorphosis: Sarah by Marjolein Audrey Banis

If you’re struck by the onset of a sudden craving for wing-like pleated bell sleeves, feathers and leather harness details, you’re well forgiven: Marjolein Audrey Banis’s shoot will do that to anyone. It’s at once hazy and defined, model Sarah de Jager at times blurring with the background like an old photograph, in parts jumping off the page like a realistic fine art sketch.

Banis and team “wanted to visualize the process of becoming the person one is”. This metamorphic process is compacted into the series of images, represented by change in hair colour, clothing, and demeanour from image to image. In it, she goes through “transformations, questions, insecurity and in the end confidence.”

Stylist Gerline Hornsveld captures the dark and edgy mood to perfection with pieces that pay as much attention to silhouette as they do to detail.

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, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
