Bondage, the Japanese way

Japanese Bondage is an aesthetic art. Beyond its sexual connotations there’s a beauty in the symmetry of the knot-tying, the intricate patterns of the ropes, in the positions of the one being bound. It’s no wonder this art, known as Kinbaku or Shibari, has become a favourite for photographers looking to tap into something both erotic and visually beautiful. A match made in heaven, this latest one teams model Taryn Andreatta with photographer Nicolas Guerin.

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.
