The axe on the wall

In presenting something of a fragmented story, Marc Rogoff doesn’t just offer up a photoshoot but rather scatters a handful of puzzle pieces at our feet and tells us to make what we will of them. A lingerie-clad beauty in what looks to be a mid-century modern home, listlessly floating from scene to scene: she might be a housewife cleaning up life’s broken moments and messes, or – with clothes burned in the back yard – cleaning up the evidence of a crime. The phone is off the hook, a man’s clothes lie strewn about but the man is no-where to be seen. Finally a car pulls into the driveway, lights glowing in the night like wild eyes about to become a spectator to this strange scene; about to see through the beauty on the surface to the cracks beneath.

But what will become of the literal axe on the wall?

Everything in Rogoff’s shoot comes together perfectly: the styling steeped in retro flair by Felix Elisabetta Forma, the 1960s style hair and makeup by Ann-Marie Lawson & Michelle Web, model Flo Dron’s doll-like expressions and the setup of it all, propped by Emma Winter. Shot for Bambi Magazine’s newly released issue XIII (check out the whole issue at bambimagazine.com), it’s well worth perusing in full. Story of a victim or a cold femme fatale – you decide by visiting the gallery above.

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.
