Snow white, raven black

Skin like milk and lips like blood make for a Gothic fairytale beauty look if ever there was one. Paired with a short-fringed, raven-black bob, model Emily Green is part Snow White, party Evil Queen.

Photographer Henryk Lobaczewski created this bewitching portrait of Emily, playing with contrasts – black against white skin – and with focal points, deliberately allowing some details to be lost and making others the razor-sharp focus of attention.

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.
