What the hope of springtime looks like

The scent of blossoms mingled with the warmth of the air has a curious effect upon a person: it inevitably fills one with hope.

Quite likely that’s the feeling we’re trying to recapture when we wrap ourselves in floral fabrics, each time the sun starts to seep through winter’s cracks. We hasten to pull on our airy white broderie anglaise and flower-printed silk dresses as a way of both channeling and encouraging the springtime. If spring has a God, our clothes are an offering.

Spring clothes against spring backdrops thus make for an hope-filled set of images by Igor Oussenko (oussenko.com). But the beauty of Ousseko’s images doesn’t end there. They’re also dappled with hazy sunlight, washed through with warmth, and hightened by sensuality. Georgy Rushev’s styling flawlessly fits the mood, and model Natalya Rassadnikova brings emotiveness.

With makeup by Ekaterina Kudrina and and hair by Olga Kholopova, it’s an all-over beautiful series of images, photographed for issue XI of Bambi Magazine.

Stay tuned for a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot, also coming soon. In the meantime you can view all of the images by clicking on the thumbnails and perusing the gallery. 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.
