NEW YORK — “I always want to wear something that’s interesting, that’s not boring,” says Marjan Jonkman, whose sense of personal style has earned her no shortage of devotees throughout fashion and beyond. Marjan exudes an effortless cool, which is something she has long admired about Hedi Slimane. “I started with Hedi Slimane and Saint Laurent…he is just cool, he doesn’t try anything, that’s just how he is.” What is also true is that Marjan doesn’t try anything, that’s just how she is and has been since making her high fashion debut as a Saint Laurent exclusive during the Spring 2015 ready-to-wear season. Marjan has never looked back as she has rocketed to the fore whether it’s shooting with Mario Testino in India or the streets of Amsterdam or appearing in the latest Céline advertising campaign by Juergen Teller. That Marjan’s career to date has been anything but boring is a testament to the model and what she brings to the party. Her willingness to laugh, her fearlessness, her poise, her grace, her style, all of these qualities set Marjan apart from the rest. “I can’t tell anything about it yet, but I want to give something back to the world.” Marjan already has given so much, but it will surprise no one when she gives even more.
