Weekend beauty: Ena in black and white

A black and white portrait of the delicateness of young beauty isn’t just pretty to look at (though, it is that), it’s also timeless – a sort of immortalisation of the subject as they are right in this moment. For that reason, these portraits are best when left close to natural: minimal makeup and minimal editing, raw in emotion and not aiming to portray some over-glamourised perfection that actually serves to make the real thing less perfect.

Shooting gorgeous model Ena, Luca Meneghel captures the essence of her natural and beautiful self. Hair and makeup artist Sabine Gutwenger plays down both aspects, and Daisy Welponer’s styling is similarly minimal, focusing on bare skin and soft, tactile fabrics.

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.
