VS by Billy Rood: a world of duality

“We all have at least two sides… In order to appreciate one you have to know the other. The more darkness you can gather up, the more light you can see too.” — David Lynch

Duality is a much explored notion, and why shouldn’t it be: we’re all fascinated by the inevitability of opposing forces, be they ones that exist in the world around us or in the soul within us. Part fashion shoot, part illustration giving rise to the mood of a sci-fi graphic novel, Billy Rood’s shoot VS for Fifty8 Digital features one model playing two of those different and opposing sides.

The wardrobe selection by Ford Artist’s stylist Favia represents the duality in a clear-cut separation of black and white. Makeup artist Kerre Berry helps create the two personas of dark and light with heavier or lighter makeup respectively. Featuring model Katrina Hoernig, it’s a shoot that will have you immersed in its black and white metropolis in an instant.

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.
