Fashion does it Better


Young Hearts Are Free (The SELECTion)

                  Maaike, Amy, Ellie, Frida, Lottie, Katie, Nia, Nadia, Cassie and Odile Coco @ Select (London) At this exact moment (writing this piece) we're still hesitating between two distinct titles. Usual dilemma, less usual feature. Shall we go for the inspiration of the moment, which would be Young Hearts Are Free or something like that. Or for the nickname we gave to the project while working on it: The SELECTion. Because that's where our hesitation is, between putting emphasis... [Lire la suite]

MK-Medley (Extended Airplay Mix)

Maaike Klaasen @ SPS (The Netherlands) You might think she's too cool for school but eductation is still a priority for Mighty Maaike and she's skipping the shows this season for this exact reason. No need to rush, anyway, and judging by the flow of materials coming (quite relentlessly and endlessly), there is no need to worry as well. And development takes time, and time matters, and you know the whole story. So, we are just glad to share some of Maaike Klaasen's most recent materials, too many pictures to put everything ...

      Maaike Klaasen @ SPS (The Netherlands), Select (London) We saw it yesterday evening and immediately thought this is a must-blog of the summer and a kind of milestone in Maaike's career. Milestone is definitely the right word as it always leaves the idea of something else coming in a near future while being a remarkable achievement in itself. This leads us to another interesting fact as most of times when you think of achievement in modeling you've got names like Vogue or any other famous magazine or label in mind... [Lire la suite]

Amy (& Co.) by Amy

Amy, Maaike and Odile @ SPS (The Netherlands) Seeing the model as a creative has always been our point as modeling can be seen as a real performance in several different cases but this one goes far beyond the usual standards describing creativity and/or performers. Not only the three girls on this video were performing in such a natural way during the time required to record four full minutes of gorgeous movie scenes but also one of them actually shot it. Amy Post is the creative brain behind the project, both director and actress,... [Lire la suite]

    Maaike Klaasen @ SPS (The Netherlands) Is there anything about Maaike we didn't write ? Don't think so, but there might be some pictures you haven't seen yet and these ones just picture her the right way. From serene to spooky, from playful to gently crazy, the palette of expressions she pulls out is subtle and precious. Shot recently by Gilbert François (check out the feature we dedicated to him and his work) in his very own style, this short black and white story focuses on what can be considered as Maaike's essence...

She's got black nail varnish (but you don't see it)

      Maaike Klaasen @ SPS (The Netherlands) Mighty Maaike exploring her fragile side with a leather jacket ? It's possible and even on polaroids. Contrasts are often the best way to put some more emphasis on a certain look or features you'd like to highlight for a specific reason. If we're always looking for polaroids of any girl we introduce or write an update on, it's quite not that often we manage to get rock-solid quality materials. Perfect polas need to respect the usual rules (no make-up, for example -- just... [Lire la suite]

Soft Power

Maaike Klaasen @ SPS (The Netherlands) Peekaboo! And here comes mighty Maaike again, with fresh materials made in London (signed with Select). We were just talking about these little reasons and small details that capture our attention in a brand new face. Maaike is maybe not the newest kid in the business but still belongs to the fresh faces in the alpha-level of their career. So what's the secret(s) behind the smooth power of a girl like her ? Well, the picture above is already giving you a hint. Expressive gaze at the camera,... [Lire la suite]

        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... [Lire la suite]

Tomorrow, when all things are shaping

Maaike Klaasen @ SPS (The Netherlands) We made a little medley last time with Maaike's shots by Jolijn Snijders and eight days before focused on Maaike's might highlighted by Jonathan Waiter. And the story goes with a taste of Milan (with Women), a taste of future for the lovely young lady. Her book is getting both bigger in size and sharper in quality, adding some new series after her work with the two Dutch wunderkinds. Emotional expressions and kinetic poses has become a trademark of hers with each new piece and it's most... [Lire la suite]

Maaike's Medley (Jolijn's Melodies)

Maaike @ SPS (The Netherlands) Mighty Maaike strikes back on our page, only one week (or so) after being featured with some eye-catching tests by Jonathan Waiter. This we're going to share two more pieces of her work, both shot by Jolijn Snijders. First series is from Ozon Magazine, well-known for limitless creativity, and embodies the reasons why we're in love with Jolijn's work. There isn't hundreds of photographers able to pull out all these expressions from their models, to capture the bright instant, to notice the litttle... [Lire la suite]
