Fashion does it Better

Aesthetic statements we can’t keep for ourselves alone, sharing pictures and thoughts, photographs and names, numbers, new faces and nonsenses.


Doughty Dreamer 
Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands)

The weather is so nice and the atmosphere is so odd that we were just thinking about doing a post like "We Are Closed Until Next Week" when Valerie's latest materials (for designer Elliot Atkinson) arrived, with a theme that is the exact opposite of the mood here. Spooky, greyish black and white picture which immediately reminds you of fall and makes you feel like tomorrow is the 1st of September. The contrast is rather refreshing and redirects you to topics you were about to overlook like the slow yet sleady major turn in Valerie's career. With her placement being officially Supreme now and some trip to NYC plan for next month, the huge efforts she and her agencies (her mother agency SPS plus Select London and Women Milan) made are finally about to pay. If they hadn't arleady paid off, looking at the high amount of editorial work of all kind she got in every city she stayed in. Development is a long (and sometimes lonely) road and it's such a great feeling when you see a little light at the end of the tunnel. Spotlights calling.
