The apartment of Brooklyn based photographer Pia Ulin is moody and layered, a skilful manipulation by Brooklyn based architectural studio Bangia Agostinho. A meandering series of intimate spaces; walls are pulled from the infinite expanse of ceiling, monochromatically toned down shade-by-shade to white, creating a play on a sense of enclosure and vastness. Warmed at the heart is a core of birch ply which wraps to form a built-in daybed and a contemplative enclosure to the study; delicately delineating a sense of ‘room’ without creating formal boundaries.

Characteristic of the loft the architects’ aspiration to celebrate the volume of space, here, is explored by a play on contrasts. Bleached timber floors are beautifully opposed by the rich deep charcoal exposed ceiling, and between the two planes; the midpoint, is found shades of grey in walls in cabinetry and warm mid toned timber furnishings. Perhaps this contrast is felt most in the layered yet lofty living room overlooked by the Noguchi Akari pendant, which floats as an ethereal delicacy in the dark abyss of the ceiling volume.

Tailored swathes of sturdy fabrics cut a powerful silhouette in Korean born London based Regina Pyo’s AW16 collection. Elegantly poised these women of position radiate confidence with oversized cuffs, geometric cutouts and asymmetric forms in classic black, white, red and royal blue creating an overall graphic picture.

Inspired by women through the ages the theatrics of the bell sleeves, kaftan and 18th century loafers are inspired nods to days past. Crumpled foil fabric adds an unexpected, and wonderfully decorative, disco highlight to this lady of artistic sophistication.
