Miu Miu: SS16 Campaign

How better to spend a Friday morning that staring into the eyes of Miu Miu’s SS16 campaign? We can’t think of one. Especially when aforementioned campaign stars not one, not two, not three but four young starlets of the big and small screen – Millie Brady, Julia Garner, Matilda Lutz and India Salvor Menuez, photographed by Steven Meisel. A quartet of talented ladies. Miuccia loves a young ingenue, does she not? “Tighly cropped, asymmetric, and shot against a neutral grey backdrop, the actors directly confront the camera in a manner that highlights their expressive range and luminous beauty.” A bit like they’re on like they’re on a casting couch, without any need to shag the director. Because these are power girls who don’t need no man, displaying “creative intelligence and an overtly rebellious sense of fashion”, as Miuccia always intends. And they are decked out in Miu Miu’s SS16 collection, a musing on extreme contrasts – in their words, “complex, textural compositions” – taking you from underground clubs to “sexy salons” via frilly negligees combined with leather boots and body-swamping herringbone jackets. Oh, the Miu Miu girl. How we long to be you.
