The urban Pocahontas

“Earthy” and “native” are words Max Kopanygin would use to describe the influences behind his latest shoot, titled Chameleon Queen. True to that the tones applied by makeup artist Lucky Bromhead are all organic, applied with a futurist twist.

“We were going for a Neo-Pocahontas vibe,” says Kopanygin. That puts model Zoe somewhere between the grassy plains of nature and the concrete streets of the big city, and there’s a kind of magic to that idea. Whether it’s in a spray-painted look that’s this Pocahontas’ war paint, or gold sprinkled across her eyelids like autumn leaves, it’s the metallic hues that create the futuristic effect.

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.
