Sodrap, with Kailee & Grace
Spain seems to be emerging as a hotbed of plus-size fashion. Besides the Spanish companies that have been noted here before, I discovered a new one the other day, and its two current campaigns feature Kailee O'Sullivan and the other popular model from the Hughes agency, Grace. That's quite a beginning!
Kailee appears in the company's current spring/summer promo. It looks as if they put tanner on her, which is too bad as her naturally fair complexion is so beautiful. But the shots are terrific, as Kailee's always are. Here are a few choice ones.
Love the expression here; plus, this is the one picture where they allowed Kailee to look curvy.
She's so pretty.
Very dramatic pose:
This one is really unique. She looks...troubled. It's an eye-catching pose, and one I've never seen before.
The prints are a bit much, but no one can deny that Kailee makes the pictures exciting.
She always puts so much passion into her modelling.
The rest of the S/S campaign is here (3 pages' worth):
The pictures with Grace are for the forthcoming Fall/Winter 2009 campaign. Sodrap took advantage of her fair complexion and blonde tresses. The stylist chose lots of pink to go with her look.
Grace is adept at sweet expressions.
Beautiful, flowing hair here.
Endearing expression, and the hat is a nice touch:
I like the way her hair is pulled back here, yet still flows.
The whole campaign:
Apparently, although Sodrap is Spanish, it markets throughout Europe. With such exciting model choices, this is a company to watch.

Re: Sodrap, with Kailee & Grace
Indeed, in many ways Spain is leading the way when it comes to size celebration.
Kailee's gorgeous campaign for Sodrap in Spain reminded me of an article that talks about how British women (and women generally) can learn a lot from their Spanish counterparts.
The article as a whole has some mixed messages and doesn't comprehend that it is tradition shaping today's politics (the very traditions that the author applauds), rather than the influence of modern ideologies, that enable Spain to have such a size-positive outlook. But the points made above are worth noting, particularly the idea of "benign narcissism" and the positive influence of the traditional family unit.
