"Horst always seems to be staring as some lost soul grappling with a new world while still being endearingly nonchalant"
Marloes Horst, subject of this editorial, is a treasure.
She has the wide eyes and swollen lips that comes straight from a scene in the seventies with added mystery and cool. I love the moody element in the work where Horst always seems to be staring as some lost soul grappling with a new world while still being endearingly nonchalant. All this basically means is that she's 'cool kid' gold, like a far less showy and over exposed Cara Delevingne, every shoot she does is considered and every character played is carefully constructed in relation to the image being shaped around her- going by this perhaps Freja Erichson would have been a better comparison than Cara but you get my drift.
Anyway, this editorial is a gorgeous one and a particular favourite of mine (all those cigarettes and weeping eyeliner- as I said gold) which was put together for Intermission magazine. Photography is by Patrik Sehlstedt and styling by Brian Molloy and one of my favourite elements to the work these guys have created is that this editorial is from 2011, now that may not seem like long ago but in fashion years thats the passing of 5 seasons to get excited and then bored about since this was released, so the fact that I still find this shoot fresh and exciting speaks volumes.
I hope you guys like it as much as I do.
