Miu Miu SS17 Campaign | thoughts





"the British photographer works with actress Elle Fanning and a cast of women who represent the ever-shifting spectrum of fashion industry visibility"


With Summer  approaching, I wanted to share my perspective of the 'Suddenly Next Summer' photographs that has been released for Miu Miu's SS17 Campaign. 

Photographer Alasdair McLellan is so contemporary right now through his representation of youth culture with work such as directing The XX 'On Hold' music video and continuous collaboration with I-D publication. The combination of McLellan with stars Elle Fanning, Karen Elson and Lara Stone brings a fresh vision to Miu Miu's vintage inspired campaign. The coastal Malibu setting is romantic and plays on the floral patterns of the styling. With high-waisted fits, art deco graphics and grainy filters sparking 50s vibes.

OUTFIT: WINTER BLUES IN THE CITY

PUFFER URBAN OUTFITTERS JEANS LEVI'S 
JUMPER BRANDY MELVILLE BOOTS OFFICE
This styling is nothing extraordinary. Rather it consists of my winter staples which when put together, create a no-fuss, effortless look that is just what I needed in the minus temperatures of Brussels. Puffer jackets are my life right now. This one is the most practical purchase I have made this past season and the style is slightly cropped with significant puffiness (??) - so it has a sort of edge that I don't usually see with the more slim-line styles. And thanks to Balenciaga for gracing their AW16 show with many-a puffers, i can be both cosy and feel swanky in my threads. Fake it 'till you make it!

Brussels was such an alluring capital that the day trip i spent there was definitely too short for what adventures I could have had. Nonetheless, I made the most of the day by exploring the streets and taking in all the architecture and surroundings. The main area that stood out to me was Grand Place, the central square that dates back to the 12th century with breathtaking details amongst it's art.

Brussels was a beauty.

What's Next For Saint Laurent

I consider Saint Laurent to be one of my favourite designer houses. Their previous creative and image director from 2012-2016, Hedi Slimane; used imagery and design in controversial ways that I thought set the designer apart (can we talk about this dreamy editorial featuring Courtney Love). The 70s rocker vibe that came with this was so influential in read-to-wear fashion and key items such as leather biker jackets and suede ankle boots have become signature to Saint Laurent after the relocation of house from Paris to L.A. However as announced earlier this year,  Anthony Vacarrello will be taking over Slimane's position.

The collection
The collection debuted this Spring during Paris Fashion week and was located in the dignified original Saint Laurent Headquarters surrounding the signature YSL logo beaming on the crowd. It took the original flair that YSL had in the 1980s and adapted it to appeal to the modern-day fashion-consious woman.

From photographs, I felt everything imitated liquid metal. Black was used to compliment dark silvers and chromes; leather and mesh combined for unique textures and lengths were barely-there putting focus on upper bodices. Most were evening-wear inspire looks.

I was particularly intrigued by this statement from his interview with Mark Holgate for Vogue UK about the direction he is taking aesthetically.

"When you say a girl of today, do you mean it’s more casual, is it more about the street?
No, it’s a girl who knows Yves Saint Laurent—maybe she had a mother who wore YSL, or she just knows what he did in the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, and she is taking those references, and she is mixing it with her own personality and her own wardrobe, to make it personal. She has a lot of respect for the past, but she’s not dressing like she’s stuck in the past, she’s dressed for now."

& you heard about a short film?
Accompanying the Spring17 collection a short film has been released starring American artist Travis Scott (always up for that trap meets hip-hop sound). The short clip peaks in sex-apeal, has a futuristic undertone, androgynous styling and features the electronic beats of Poter Elvinger. Neat.

Bay Side


SATIN BRANDY MELVILLE | DENIM TOPSHOP | SKINNY SCARF ZARA | SHOES OFFICE SHOES

Lake Zurich was the perfect location to shoot. The Limmat River that flows into the lake serves as a border between the new and the old districts of the city. Although different in their architecture, both areas encompass the continental bustle that inspired me whilst there. The River and Lake are at the heart of this buzz, surrounded by people of all ages swimming, sunbathing and socialising whilst immersing themselves in the sunshine. Yet the further you venture, the more tranquil the lake becomes. It's crystal clear water and dreamy back drop was a view of dreams.

The pairing of a feminine satin camisole and masculine teddy-girl inspired jeans embodies my personal style perfectly. The addition of the skinny scarf continues this 60s esque look. And a final note; oh boy are these jeans comfortable.
