I remember Laetitia from previous posts on this forum. She's appearing in a lovely campaign from a new Dutch company called X-Two, and it's one of the better European promotions I've ever seen outside Germany or Italy.

The setting has an Orientalist flavour, and the location resembles Morocco. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed. It reminds me a little of the mood that Dress Barn always evokes in its gorgeous seasonal booklets.

Laetitia herself has a very curvy figure, and looks comfortable in the surroundings. Even some of the clothing is fairly attractive, especially compared to other companies in Europe, where the New Femininity has taken a lot time to impact plus-size fashion. I rather like this blouse, with its ruffled cuffs:

The booklet is viewable online either in a regular page-by-page format, or with Acrobat. Both are accessible via the link below:

Laetitia is a beautiful model, and it's so nice to see the European retailers using true plus-size models. Let's hope that campains like these put an end to the faux-plus images we see far too often in Europe.

Here is one of my favorite images from this look book. It shows Laetitia's round features and full, womanly arms:
