Now more than ever, any occasion – big or small – feels special: an excuse to celebrate and express ourselves through our style. Pandora’s Wearing Occasions concept allows us to rejoice in the everyday moments in life as well as the big events and milestones.
“I would define my style as kind of all over the place. Throughout the years you play with different looks, feelings and vibes. As you get older you fine-tune those things, so I think at this point it’s a little more refined.” Says artist Tasya van Ree.
“There’s a fine line between the masculine and the feminine and I think I ride that really fine line between the two.”
“I love jewellery; I love the creativity that it projects. Jewellery is really important when it comes to getting dressed, depending on what kind of mood you’re trying to go towards. I am loving the charm look right now; it tells its own story within a story.”
American multidisciplinary artist Tasya van Ree is known for her striking black-and-white portraits, which evoke a timeless glamour inspired by the work of famed 20th-century photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson and Weegee. With an intuitive eye for form and composition, Tasya captures the internal dialogue of her subjects through her seductive photographs. She reveals her own identity through her distinctive fashion choices. “There’s a fine line between the masculine and the feminine and I think I ride that really fine line between the two,” she says.
Tasya was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii, an upbringing that she says allowed her to embrace a sense of freedom. She later moved to Los Angeles and continues to seek inspiration in the city’s art and culture, along with what she describes as the ‘infinite mystery’ of the natural world. Her work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions around the globe, and alongside that of artists including Gus Van Sant, David Lynch and Jessica Lange.
An accomplished painter as well as photographer, Tasya finds inspiration within her dreams and uses painting as a way to interpret them. She has also created short films and designed a line of t-shirts. She has described herself as a rebel “by society’s standards”, declaring that she tries “to exist in [her] own energetic field”, a trait that translates into her mesmerising, otherworldly artwork.
