Mirror, mirror

The mood is a little dark, the contrasts strong. Against the industrial-feeling backdrop of dirty bricks and concrete, model Melody looks a little like a fairytale Queen that’s fallen from her mighty kingdom. She’s still decked out in her fineries – her furs and lace dresses and beaded headpiece – but her surroundings don’t match up to her attire, or her poise. The beautiful black and white photography by Daniel Luxford creates contrasts with light and shadows just as the styling by Vanessa Lane creates contrasts with the setting.

Luxford also plays with movement and exposure to create a ghostly effect across some of the images. For the full shoot of Melody by Daniel Luxford (danielluxford.com), click on the thumbnails above.

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.
