Strict lines & stark times

Strict Lines & Stark Times: the title says much, but not quite all, when it comes to Michael David Adams’ latest shoot. Indeed there’s a clean minimal feel to the sparse white backdrop, block colours and slightly architectural cuts, but Don West’s styling also brings in some more intricate black and white prints, some pops of vibrant colour and some fluidity of fabrics. Featuring the spring collection of Primary New York, the shoot is about taking the season’s hints of strictness and starkness and blending them seamlessly with softer parts of one’s wardrobe.

Viktorija Bowers’ hair and makeup work perfectly compliments the notion of soft minimalism: strict hair atop skin that glows with a gentle shimmer of makeup.

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.
