Strange alchemy: LAB by Katya Tsyganova

What dark alchemy is this? Taking to a laboratory as the setting of her shoot LAB, Katya Tsyganova is mixing up formulas of fashion and beauty that turn the everyday into gold. Shimmery skin by makeup artist Kate Mur and gravity defying hair by Tatyana Pogosyan are key parts of this visual formula of which Kir Akimov’s styling – filled with sparkling lurex and shiny metallics – is the unwavering foundation.

Tsyganova’s use of shadow and light brings out the precious metals theme that resides within the mystery of the shoot. Featuring models Mariya Izyumova and Julia Ogun, the shoot also comes with an accompanying video which you can watch below.

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.
