Just In Case
This is the story of two women who met on a bus. It took them a few years to realize their spirits were siblings, I guess at first they had their own lives to lead. Two worlds needed to be perceived separately, through a different set of eyes, before settling down to create Just In Case. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, detail is in the very souls of Vicky Vinck and Katrien Strijbol. Their vision is playful, their intuition profound. There is no catch, only a very elegant edge. Imagine Just In Case as an antique storybook, passed on from generation to generation, with pictures that selectively reveal themselves. Behind every detail there is a story, and yet the big picture can never quite be big enough. Every chapter is cast in its own setting, and just when you think you’ve seen it all, you find there’s another hidden door.
Just In Case is about fragile confidence, girlish wisdom and mature playfulness. It allows the sensual alter ego in each of us to come out and play. It strips sexuality of all its clichés and pares it down to the very bare essentials of what a woman is like in her dreams. A ballerina on a squeaky floorboard. The glow of a candle. An intimate desire wanting to be shared. Hidden pockets and secret messages.
