Party MOMENTS and Q&A with Marlijn Hoek

Bonjour Paris! At the famous Hôtel West End, close to the hotspot du jour, Jardin du Luxembourg, VILA shot our Autumn 17 campaign.

We hooked up with the Dutch model Marlijn Hoek as our campaign model. Marlijn combines tomboy cool, Dutch edge and high fashion chicness. She's the type of girl we would party with. Here are nine reasons why VILA MOMENTS adore Marlijn.

Marlijn, what is a typical day like for you?
I wake up very early, go to work, get my hair and make-up done and finish very late.

What do you like most about your job?
I just looove my job! And everything that comes along with it.

If you weren’t modeling what would you be doing?
I often ask myself that question. I have been modelling for so long that I don’t know how my life would be without travels, meeting new people, seeing different locations. Perhaps, I would to be a CSI agent? Or maybe I’d study or be a make-up artist?

How would you describe your personal style?
Chic but comfy casual. I value good quality, and I pull inspiration from magazines and street style.

Do you have any hidden talents?
I played field hockey for 12 years. I can also play concert flute and one (!) song on the piano.

3 facts about you that people may not know?
I love numbers. My favourite number is 12. Somehow someway everything in my life circles around that particular number: I was born on the 12/12 and my field hockey T-shirt was marked with 12. Just to name a few examples.

Things you can’t live without?
My fiancé, family, my phone, nature and traveling.

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pizza Margarita.

Which VILA styles are your personal favourites from the collection?
Orv, I can mention quite a few: A high neck blouse and a cool see-though maxi skirt, plus a delicate strop top with lace and a plissé medi-skirt that sparkles. In these two outfits, I would definitely be ready to party.
