Mix/Muse: Saskia de Brauw

A new series on women inspiring us with their style, originality, wit

 and fearlessness. First up: the new face of Label/Mix, Saskia de Brauw.

Artist and model Saskia de Brauw doesn’t do conventional. Scouted in her teens, she left modelling 

at 16 to study art in her hometown of Amsterdam, before returning at 29 to even greater success – she 

instantly landed the cover of Vogue Paris – and is still one of the most in-demand models at 37. And all

 this while pursuing her art, which explores the relationship between the physical body and its surroundings; 

a recent exhibition, titled Ghosts Don’t Walk In Straight Lines, saw her pace the length of Manhattan

 in 20 hours, capturing scenes on the streets on film.

Unsurprisingly, there’s an art-school sensibility to her dress, all slouchy overcoats, chunky knits, Oxford bags 

and long scarves, topped off by that impish pixie haircut – all of which show a woman who’s marching 

to her own beat. We like, a lot.  

“Working as a model is high-speed and my work [as an artist] is super-slow and doubtful. Time plays an important role. My physical body is taking shape in space and I see that my ideas about how we influence space with our movement are really 'matter of fact'... We leave something of ourselves behind everywhere we pass. This is what fascinates and inspires me

- Saskia de Brauw, speaking to Eugenie Dalland in 2014
