Claire Broeders, Maaike Klaasen and Quirine van Laack @ SPS (The Netherlands)
Craziness. Or how to revisit the ways to be crazy on a fashion shoot. Jalouse did it for its last issue of the year and did it well, making the whole magazine more attractive again. We've been missing a little those features with new girls doing their first steps even if this year brought us a couple of good editorials in Jalouse. Without going back to its old-school vibe, we're glad to feel it looks true to itself and its concepts. The young ladies this months are all from the Netherlands which doesn't sound extremely original when you hear it first. Though, it's far from what you would expect when one says "dutch girls". Imagine Patricia, Lisanne, Mirte and just go the opposite way.
Claire, Maaike and Quirine all have some classic features but certainly knows how to let explode their potential slightly beyond the sleekness, going crazy through a few glossy pages. From candid happiness to limitless craziness, from cute scenes to magnificent madness, the theme is visited from every possible side without overplaying any aspect or going too far in any direction. Who would have ever imagine it was possible to find some balance in craziness ? Maybe we could have done it but it still sounds strange. They say Wild Things, we can add bright words.
