Miu Miu wins my vote yet again. I just watched the second instalment of the brand’s Women’s Tales film series and feel slightly disorientated. In a Felliniesque way. The Argentinian director, Lucrecia Martel, has created a powerful fictional meeting between fashion, beauty and slightly dark surrealism with great gusto. Images of wonderful alien like creatures wearing exquisite Miu Miu dresses and shoes move around a boat in a dramatic and bizarre way, occasionally standing motionless like classical pillars. Snatched glimpses of a male hand trying to get on board or a silent woman sitting in a wooden safety boat floating on the ship’s swimming pool constitute unsettling elements waiting to be decoded.
In these days of growing concern at the methods of attracting the masses, it is amazing to find that some fashion designers will still encourage complete creativity.
I found this film absorbing and ambitious. I absolutely love it. What do you think?
