Björk’s Daughter Debuts as Miu Miu Face

NEW MIUSE: Isadora Bjarkardóttir Barney, daughter of Icelandic music star Björk and American artist and film director Matthew Barney, is the latest talent to join the rooster of Miu Miu faces.The fashion house, which is known for scouting emerging talents for its campaigns and projects, such the Women’s Tales short movie series with films created by female directors, has tapped Barney to front a new campaign unveiled on Wednesday.
Marking the first time Barney poses for a fashion brand, the ads are dedicated to the jewelry line Miu Miu developed with artists Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg.
In addition to creating the colorful pieces, Djurberg and Berg served as artistic directors of the campaign, which was photographed by Julien Martinez Leclerc and styled by Lotta Volkova.

In the studio images, Barney is seen wearing the jewels and interacting with otherworldly creatures, ranging from birds to skeletal hands.

Dubbed “A Remedy,” the collection comprises colorful, naïve jewelry in the shape of flowers, animals and pills. The pieces are inspired by the artists’ 2015 sculpture series “A Thief Caught in the Act,” which represents whimsical birds stealing pills and tiny objects from a table.
“I first met Nathalie and Hans in 2005,” said Miuccia Prada in a statement. “Three years later we exhibited their work at the Fondazione Prada and since then, our dialogue has been constant. It has been so interesting to see how their work developed through time, encompassing different mediums, and always eager to confront with a new mind-set,” she said, adding that this approach “is exactly at the core of our ‘A Remedy’ project with Miu Miu.”
Djurberg and Berg said in a statement the project was an opportunity “to be playful and take on something very new. It makes you think differently, and new and unexpected things appear.”
In the collection, the animal- and pill-shaped charms were made of resin elements and hand-polished and galvanized metal with gold finishes. The jewelry pieces come in dedicated boxes painted with flora and fauna motifs in bright colors, matching the mood of the precious items. Upon opening, a carillon inside each box plays music composed especially for the project by Berg.

The collaboration between Miu Miu and the artists debuted at the brand’s fall 2022 runway show in Paris, when a sportier take on the viral Miu Miu set introduced the previous season was unveiled, kickstarting the tennis-gear fever that is trending on social media this summer.
In the advertising images, Barney is wearing some of the pieces, but the ready-to-wear collection’s key items are in full display in Miu Miu’s main fall 2022 campaign released last week and fronted by Emma Corrin, Sydney Sweeney and Demi Singleton.

Hailey Bieber Fronts Miu Miu’s Spring 2022 Campaign

Miu Miu has tapped a number of faces for its spring 2022 ad campaign, one of them being Hailey Bieber.Bieber is photographed in the label’s signature pieces, including its famous pleated micro-miniskirt in denim and khaki, a cropped button-down, slouchy socks, pointed loafers and a gold chain beige bag.
The campaign was photographed by British photographer Tyrone Lebon, with creative direction by Lina Kutsovskaya of Be Good Studios and styled by Lotta Volkova.

The photos are meant to show the free spirit of the label by juxtaposing the collection’s raw-edged clothes with luxurious and colorful backdrops.
Miu Miu’s famous pleated micro-miniskirt is embracing one of the anticipated clothing trends for 2022, as more trends from the early Aughts era make a comeback. Micro-miniskirts were worn by many celebrities in the early 2000s, such as Paris Hilton, Christina Aguilera and Rihanna, among others.

For the campaign, Bieber appeared alongside “The Crown” star Emma Corrin, “Squid Game” star Lee Yoo-mi, “Atlantics” star Mame Bineta Sane and models Ever Anderson and Alix Bouthors.
Last year, Bieber was tapped as an ambassador for Tiffany & Co. as well as popular shoe brand Superga.
“Superga is synonymous with Italy so when I was asked to become the brand’s new ambassador, I immediately thought about how it’s one of my favorite countries — I spent a part of my honeymoon there,” Bieber said at the time.

Amy Winehouse Auction Garners $4 Million

An auction of Amy Winehouse’s performance dresses and accessories brought in $4 million this weekend.
Hosted by Julien’s Auctions, the auction included more than 800 of the late singer’s performance dresses, accessories and other apparel to benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, one of the leading charities in the U.K. supporting young people.
Known for her retro style, the auction included dresses, bustiers, handbags and shoes from designer brands like Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, Hermès, Miu Miu, Giorgio Armani and Fred Perry.
One of the most notable sales during the auction was of Winehouse’s bamboo and floral print silk halter dress — which was custom-made by her stylist Naomi Parry — that she wore during her last stage performance in Belgrade in 2011 right before her untimely death. The dress went for $243,200, 15 times the original estimated price of $15,000.

“Amy Winehouse is one of the rare and remarkable music icons whose incredible power and soulful expression in every word and note she sang with her distinct voice remains unmatched by no other artist in music history,” said Martin Nolan, executive director of Julien’s Auctions, in a statement. “We celebrate her singular talent and iconoclastic style in this collection of her most personal artifacts and wardrobe worn in her career defining moments.”

7 Standout Beauty Trends from the SS22 Runways

7 Standout Beauty Trends from the SS22 Runways

With fashion week finally back in the flesh for the spring/summer 2022 shows, designers were in the mood to celebrate. In fact, they were in the mood to party, with nostalgic nods to Y2K club culture and the hedonistic days of Studio 54. Cue statement hairdos featuring intricate details and larger-than-life accessories, and high glam make-up replete with all the right kinds of shimmer and shine. Then, there were those beauty moments that were so out there they bordered on the surreal. Below, Vogue rounds up the seven standout beauty trends from the spring/summer 2022 runways.
1. Shimmer and sparkle
Like the sparkling fizz of a champagne bottle, nothing feels more celebratory than a touch of shimmer. And at this season’s shows, there were plenty of them. There was full-on body glitter at Blumarine; light-reflecting lips and lids at Dolce & Gabbana; and streaks of shimmer running through gelled mohawks at Marni. And what about the full face of festival-inspired glitter at Dries Van Noten? Whichever way you wear it, it’s your time to shine.

2. Y2K beauty
At this season’s shows, Y2K fever was palpable. Not just in the clothes, but the hair and make-up, too. Note the poker-straight hair at Versace, Fendace, Chanel, and Stella McCartney, and the spiky top knots at Nensi Dojaka. There was also the high-shine lip gloss at Victoria Beckham, Dolce & Gabbana and Blumarine, and, of course, the frosted eyeshadow at Giorgio Armani. At this season’s shows, no one was immune to the millennium bug.

3. Intricate hair textures
Instead of the blunt bobs and dramatic fringes of seasons past, this season there was a focus on texture and detail. Just look at the intricate twists at Rejina Pyo, or the supersized plaits at Erdem. Or the exquisite neon wefts that Sam McKnight wove through models’ hair at Dries Van Noten. After a long period of leaving our hair to more or less look after itself, what with salon closures and working from home culture, this heavily detailed trend heralded a much-needed return to craft.

4. The wet look
There’s something about a glistening wet hair look that feels instantly fresh and alternative. It’s also the perfect way to revitalize your look without having to commit to a new cut or color. There are many ways to wear it, too. At Richard Quinn, hairstylist Sam McKnight transformed models, Lila Moss and Stella Jones, into his “alien angels”, by parting their hair into three sections and slicking it back in various directions.
Meanwhile, at Miu Miu, Guido accessed a kind of subcultural cool by slicking models’ hair into deep side-partings. It was the same at Balenciaga, where Holli Smith stuck models’ fringes to their foreheads. At Chloé, James Pecis leaned into the idea even further, creating an almost soaking wet effect on models that looked as though they’d just emerged from the sea.

5. Statement hair accessories
Another standout hair trend at the spring/summer 2022 shows was the statement hair accessory. See the larger-than-life spherical confections at Harris Reed or the Surrealist-inspired hats at Schiaparelli. There were also dainty white bows at Giambattista Valli, nostalgic headscarves at Versace, and a beaded, child-like mobile at Moschino. Not to mention Simone Rocha’s signature hair clips and bejeweled tiaras.

6. Street-style hues
Amongst the nostalgic references and directional hair trends, it was refreshing to see moments of colorful whimsy. Take the unexpected pastel-hued crops at Loewe, or the street-style-inspired accents of mauve, copper, and Bottega green at Valentino, both courtesy of Guido Palau, both celebrations of individuality.

7. The new black eyeliner
In a similar vein to those street-style hues, this season’s black eyeliner takes its cues from youthful self-expression. At Givenchy, Lucia Pieroni created feathery black lines around models’ eyes in an apparent reference to Harajuku street culture. Meanwhile, at Dior, Peter Philips used a mixture of white and black eyeliner to create a double lower and upper feline flick that felt modern and countercultural. It was the same at Marine Serre, where thick feline flicks and rims under eyes felt cool and rebellious.

Eduard Both Started With Socks — Now He’s Totally Into Shirts

Eduard Both Started With Socks — Now He’s Totally Into Shirts

While many fashion designers jump right into creating full collections, Eduard Both graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in 2017 and started with socks.
“I always like to see a covered ankle,” he related over Zoom. “It was all about texture.”
He segued into knitwear with his upstart brand, Creative Anonymous Projects, or CAP, scoring orders from such prestigious retailers as 10 Corso Como, Browns, The Room at Hudson’s Bay and Renaissance — only to put his brand on hold to go work for Miu Miu and Ports 1961 for a few years.
Now CAP Studio is back and it’s all about shirts, based on a men’s style from the 1950s with buttons lined up on the right, though he considers them gender-neutral.

“I embrace the freedom to do whatever product inspires me at a certain time,” he said. “The focus on product categories is very important. In a collection, it’s very difficult to have every category have the same quality and standards.”
While working in Milan, Both became obsessed with a Miu Miu colleague who looked amazing in her workaday uniform of a borrowed men’s shirt and a pencil skirt. He also stumbled across a mom-and-pop shirt shop in Milan whose quality astonished him, inspiring him to engage its factory, and scope out a range of specialty ateliers that could do screen printing, inkjet printing, embroideries, pleating and quilting.

“I decided to keep shapes simple. It’s more about treatments on top of the shirt,” he explained. “We’re trying to push the conceptual boundaries of what a shirt could be.”

The shirts are considered genderless.

Both plans to launch with about 10 styles, with short or long sleeves and two hem variations: curved or straight. They are to be sold beginning today on his new e-shop, along with some boxer shorts and also socks. Shirts are priced from 356 euros to 765 euros.
He kept the sizing basic — 1, 2 and 3 — to make his proposition more inclusive and inviting. Although conceived as a summer product, he considers shirts suitable for year-round wear, and is experimenting with quilted styles for colder climates.
Both said he plans to unveil a fuller spring 2022 range during Paris Fashion Week via a showroom presentation, and do two collections a year.
His yen for shirts stems partly from fatigue with jersey, which dominated fashion because of the streetwear and athleisure trends, and which took hold during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I’m craving a moment when people are dressing up again, and putting more effort into their appearance,” he mused.

12 Summer Denim Buys with Plenty of Mix-and-Match Potential

12 Summer Denim Buys with Plenty of Mix-and-Match Potential

After a prolonged stint at home in your sweats, it’s finally time to step up your post-quarantine style game and there’s no better place to start than with one of SS21’s biggest trends: denim. From classic jeans to resort-ready dresses, board shorts, hats and bags, runway-inspired denim is everywhere.
While the 90s offered up iconic body-con silhouettes (thank you, Versace), today’s denim shapes are a little looser and laissez-faire. Pair jeans with sneakers and a baseball cap (Celine), add a touch of leopard (Paco Rabanne), or challenge convention by clashing an extra wide leg with a mini belt bag (Chanel).
With sustainability still high on everyone’s agenda, it’s no surprise that Levi’s and Miu Miu decided to collaborate recently on a new vintage denim collection created from past outfits. Iconic Levi’s pieces such as the 501 jeans and Trucker jacket were updated with feminine details including hand-embroidery, beading, and crystal — perfect for that summer getaway providing you can get your hands on one of the ultra-limited edition pieces.
As a packing staple that is both practical and versatile, denim is a must. We’ve rounded up 12 key buys with plenty of mix-and-match potential…

Now Available in Dubai, Miu Miu’s Upcycled Vintage Dresses are Wardrobe Treasures

Now Available in Dubai, Miu Miu’s Upcycled Vintage Dresses are Wardrobe Treasures

Anyone who loves sourcing vintage clothing knows that wearing an item with history is a feeling unlike any other. Vintage finds are also the building blocks of a sustainable wardrobe, and when upcycled, can be pieces to treasure forever. Miuccia Prada is of the same mind, as she continues to champion sustainable fashion with the Upcycled by Miu Miu collection.
It is made up of 80 one-off vintage dresses that are reworked while still keeping the “memory” of the originals intact by preserving the fabric. The dresses are anonymous finds from the 30s and 80s, carefully sourced from vintage clothing stores and markets around the world. Every piece was then transformed as per the Miu Miu DNA, reflected in the use of the brand’s signature collar, bows, and embellishments. No two dresses are the same, and this is ensured by the painstaking hand-work on each of the pieces.

The collection is available across nine selected Miu Miu stores worldwide, however, seven out of the 80 dresses are being sold exclusively at the label’s boutique in Fashion Avenue, The Dubai Mall throughout February. If a shopper wishes to buy a dress outside of of the local selection, the boutique offers the option of placing a special order and then transferring the piece.
The designs were unveiled towards the end of 2020, following the sustainability initiatives of a number of designers and labels including Maison Margiela’s upcycled ‘Recicla’ pieces, Gabriela Hearst’s appointment as Chloé’s creative director, and Coach’s reworked 70s bags to name a few. The collection is also one of Mrs Prada’s steps in maintaining a circular fashion system, with the designer launching the Prada Re-Nylon collection in 2019, which used econyl — a regenerated-nylon yarn crafted from reclaimed ocean plastics, and fishing nets.

Miu Miu Celebrates Women’s Individualism with Spring 2021 Ads

Miu Miu Celebrates Women’s Individualism with Spring 2021 Ads

MILAN – Miu Miu is strengthening its connection with Emma Corrin. The British actress, who portrayed Princess Diana of Wales in season four of “The Crown,” is once again fronting the Italian fashion brand’s ad campaign. Miu Miu first tapped Corrin for its holiday 2020 campaign last October.
Further conveying a message of diversity, for spring 2021, Miu Miu also enlisted Canadian multimedia artist Allison Katz; American singer and classical musician Kelsey Lu, who plays several instruments including the piano, the violin and the cello; and models Chloé and Topsy. Miu Miu provided a few tidbits to underscore their multi-faceted personalities, in sync with the brand’s vision of women’s individualism and empowerment.

For example, Chloé is studying to obtain her pilot license and Topsy molds clay. The images capture the different sides of each woman, juxtaposing posed photos with other more personal ones.
Photographed by Steven Meisel, the campaign is called “Mind Mapping.”

In November, Miu Miu’s general manager Benedetta Petruzzo told WWD that “the Miu Miu women are plural: they are a community, a multitude of women who recognize themselves in their own individuality.”
