Miu Miu F/W 2017 Campaign
Miu Miu taps a fresh cast for its resort 2017 campaign. Inspired by an all-night stroll through the streets of Rome, models Dree Hemingway, Cecilia Chancellor, Brigit Kos, Faretta Radic and Sara Somogyi appear in the advertisements. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan on the famous road Via Appia Antica, the girls wear embellished styles with a youthful twist. From bags with sparkling crystals to silk jackets and knit sweaters, the designs stand out in the eclectic images.
The latest campaign for Miu Miu, realized by photographer Alasdair McLellan, collages New Orleans landscapes and landmarks, from the dripping bayou to the august Preservation Hall. Everything here is a deeply textured bricolage, full of tension and wild energy.
Diverse references drawn from a multiplicity of pasts represent splintered images of glamour: brightly-colored faux furs and translucent plastics sheath feathered drop-waist dresses, superimposing contemporary shapes and materials onto old-timey sensibilities.
The resulting photos effervesce the type of atemporality only found in places as overgrown and alive as New Orleans. Jeweled hardware and piles of paillettes meet expanses of softness cinched together with wide straps, embracing the everyday hybridity of place and preservation.
