Death by fashion: the fall of Eve

There’s no glaring religious symbolism in Chad Muller’s shoot; no cunning serpent or wise gnarled tree shining with tantalising globes of fruit. Nothing, in fact, to mark it as a loose retelling of the Genesis story bar for the little clue he drops in the title: Eve.

Chad’s images from the latest issue of Bambi Magazine are a selection from the Eve series, which was shot over the course of two years. Like the Biblical first woman, this Eve is innocent in her nakedness, basking and playing amidst the rawness of nature with an unabashed sense of freedom. Clothed she becomes a little tormented, unhinged even – full of wild-eyed looks and strange poses.

The fall of Muller’s Eve is a literal one, as the final image of her lifeless body strewn amount the bluebells shows. A quirky, clever and dark play on the biblical tale, knowledge is not the forbidden treasure that causes her downfall – fashion is.

Shot on analog film and featuring model Kat Klime, you can preview the full shoot by clicking on the gallery. Head to bambimagazine.com to peruse all of issue 11 – it’s well worth a look.

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.
