Such a title as Polina and Nature is so amazingly uncomplicated that one could almost feel compelled to try and read deeper meaning – meaning that probably isn’t there – into Serge-Edouard’s shoot. But what it actually says is that this is not so much a fashion shoot as a man plying his craft. It’s an art title, describing exactly what the artwork is, in the way that Rembrandt’s Philosopher in Meditation or Galizia’s Apples in a dish describe their respective works, or the way Madonna and Child titles a thousand paintings of the Madonna and Child. It may not be alike those particular pieces but the point is this: what you see is the artist presenting their artwork. And what you see, is what you get.

As such there’s no complex credit list of styling team, hair and makeup: it’s Serge-Edouard and Polina… And nature.

Serge-Edouard, thus acting also as stylist, kits out his subject in lingerie pieces and outerwear-as-the-only-wear – i.e. trench coats worn sexily as dresses – and one particularly on-trend outfit of a buttoned up shirt and crucifix necklace, a play on the season’s gothic themes. In these outfits Polina is an object against a backdrop of nature, and both are the subjects equally in front of Serge-Edouard’s lens.

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.
