Anne-Marie van Dijk: Dolly by Le Petit Tom II

Anne-Marie van Dijk: Dolly by Le Petit Tom II

Following on from the previous post dedicated to the huge archive of images produced to promote the “Dolly” collections by the Dutch brand Le Petit Tom, the next “set” I’d like to present is in fact taken from diverse collections (unlike the one before), but uniform in that they’re all b&w (or at least approaching monochrome):

…..I know you can go b&w with just a click, but it does show some desire to present what are basically commercial products in a way that acknowledges their intrinsic beauty, particularly when worn by sympathetic models.

The next set are again diverse, since I’m demonstrating the quality of the photography more than selling individual items – and in another nod to aesthetics over filthy lucre, they were originally published without the insistent “Dolly” watermark:

…..and my three favourites from this group – each very different from the other, but still perfect examples of girls’ portraiture that could hold their heads up in any photographic company:

……and with those exemplary fashion portraits, I’ll leave the post at this point ( I think I can finish with just one more) – with just one little footnote. Anne-Marie van Dijk’s little bio on the Le Petit Tom site mentions that her mother was a pianist:

Director and creator Anne-Marie van Dijk, daughter of a pianist and a very inspiring and artistic mother, started her business Le Petit Tom ® in 2005 after having four of her now five children , who were a very important inspiration, as well as her love for outstanding stylish products, fashion, photography, trading, graphics and creative design.” (www.lepetittom.nl)

……and adds this charming photo – presumably of her mother as a child:
