Pink hair and the magic of the Eighties

How do you create a shoot that highlights elements of the 1980s but doesn’t actually feel like it’s dated? Luca Meneghel has the answer in the form of this photo series, titled Pink Eighties. The title is fairly self explanatory; and yet between Meneghel’s photography, Norma Nardi’s styling and Sabine Gutwenger’s hair and makeup, it all feels decidedly modern.

Model Madeline Pace wears floral hotpants, high pink tights, a rainbow-striped skipping rope, a shaggy oversized jumper… paired with chalked pink hair and pink eyeshadow. It’s all a bit modernised and refined, though; the magic of the ’80s sprinkled in the now.

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.
