Fashion does it Better


Can't Turn It Off

  Imagine a conversation in a bus at the crossroads of city life and countryside. What is a modern approach (in modeling, in fashion for that matter). First good reflex would be to make a proper description of what modern means but we guess this doesn't remain the same from one brain to the other. Maybe the question is what's a suitable approach for our current times but still no clue if that really makes sense. Then the real point of starting like this, is to know what is your own way and how to give enough power to your vision... [Lire la suite]

Bat Girl

Merle Bergers @ SPS (The Netherlands) Merle might be the sweetest girl ever, she knows how to embody the perfect brat for a few hours when shooting with Jolijn Snijders. Bat brat if you allow us to drop a little pun to wake you up on this rainy Wednesday morning. And it would actually fit for the playful vibe one can get from these pictures, carefreely playing with pop symbols. Welcome to Merle's world, pictured here as a one-girl-show on a giant red dot. It seems fun at first time yet the story behind is quite interesting to know as... [Lire la suite]

Every Now And Then

Odile Coco @ SPS (The Netherlands) From coast to coast, from East to West, from time to time and so on. Everything is matter of time and space in modeling if you see things from a certain angle and if for Odile Coco there is no real geographical parameter involved in her career, time certainly plays its role. Timing, as some would say and as new materials keep being added every now and then to her portfolio (rather now than then but the future might add some treasures to the pack as well), timing seems to be good for an...

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 ...

Her Stare Is Louder Than Your Voice

      Michelle Den Hollander @ SPS (The Netherlands), Supreme (NY) If you take the time to listen to our rhyme, you would be aware of Michelle's magical stare. Something you can't miss, can't overlook even if you glimpse at the pictures for a few seconds only. Michelle never gets rid of it and that's for the very best but this time Anouk Morgan managed to bring this extraordinary feature to another level. We don't even think it was meant to be this way, it's just the natural result of a great collaboration, of a model... [Lire la suite]

      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]

Portraits & Promises

    Elisa @ SPS (The Netherlands) Talking about "model countries" five minutes ago writing on a german girl, here are two from the Netherlands, a country that has been labeled "the new model eldorado" by many over the last few seasons. But keeping our point of the previous article, it's more a matter of strategy, philosophy or policy or call it how you want but it's up to the agencies first. Scouting skills and devoted development have more weight than geography even if it always sounds fancy to say one place is the next... [Lire la suite]

Fake Friday

  Karlijn Alderliesten @ SPS (The Netherlands) Friday afternoon, time for new faces. There is no specific reason in that move except the mood, we're in such a mood for newbies at this exact minute. Had our Friday booze on Thursday eve so let's act as if we were Monday morning. If it has to be crazy, let's make it crazier. On a totally different note, far from our pre-weekend private jokes, Karlijn is making her first steps right now, carefully groomed by her mother agent from SPS Model Management in Amsterdam. If we had her... [Lire la suite]

The Performer

          Valerie Van Der Graaf @ SPS (The Netherlands) There are days you write about your expectations and days you describe how they've come true. Many posts dedicated to Valerie were expectations, fuelled by some die-hard faith in a young model slowly yet steadily building a book. This time visuals went far beyond beliefs, expectations turned out to be relevant, we weren't dreaming of Valerie becoming a great model but were watching it. Live. If in many of her previous works, apart from the most recent... [Lire la suite]

And Now

Tessa Gelderblom @ SPS (The Netherlands) It's almost one day, one Tessa or let's just say here comes the other Tessa from SPS Model Management, Tessa Gelderblom. Just as fresh as her homonymous agency-mate, Miss Gelderblom took a different road with her different look and if you may not remember which one has what last name, you can mistake their faces. Actually the two could have been featured in the same post as these stories by Gilbert François were initially meant to be a huge one, a panoramic overview of the newbies at SPS.... [Lire la suite]
