What Our Models Say About The New Simply Be Campaign

We caught up with Sarina Nowak and Natalie Nootenboom, two of the stars of our brand new spring campaign, to talk all things body positivity and find out about their favorite pieces from Simply Be.

Let’s start with the stunning German beauty, Sarina. Featuring throughout our athleisure campaign, she says,

“It has been such a great experience for me in the curve industry, as I was originally a straight sized model who made the decision one day to embrace my body for what it wanted to be and love myself and not care what anyone else thought. Once I did that, the curve industry embraced me and so many opportunities have opened up for me!” Sarina also loves, “how Simply Be embraces all different kind of curvy body types, from US size 6 and above.” When asked about her own style, Sarina says, “It has to be comfortable and cute, and trendy at the same time. It’s also important for me to find the right jeans that will fit for me because of my body type— I have a small waist, so its not always easy to find the right jeans that will fit. I also love the way Simply Be denim fits me, and the pieces from the new athleisure lines are so cute and current.”

The utterly gorgeous Natalie Nootenboom, starring in our swim and festival campaigns says,

“My experience has been great. I love working with different designers and brands that normally wouldn’t choose a curvier girl. It shows that the wider scoping fashion industry  is opening up their minds more and more. Working with Simply Be is honestly a dream. The team is like a family and they treat me with so much respect and we work in a real collaborative way, I don’t just model we create together. It’s so fun to work with them and there’s never a dull moment. I loved shooting the festival desert shoot. It’s my favorite shoot, the make up was more moody with powerful dark eyeliner and the bold body suits with sheer overlays. When we shot the look, my arms were up, I contorted my body shape and I was looking into the sun. I felt so free and powerful.” Natalie definitely had some favorite pieces from the shoots too, “I love the green bodysuit.  It has a beautiful bustier look and I think it is so sexy. I’m so excited to see it on other girls, I know they will feel sexy and empowered! I also love the cheetah print bathing suit form the Palm Springs pool shoot. I love clothes that take a walk on the wild side and have an edge.” When it comes to Natalie’s style, “There has to be an edginess in the clothes. I always look for something weird, different, and a little daring. ”
