Moments of beauty, touches of history, pieces of life. The Spring/Summer 2024 Miu Miu collection by Miuccia Prada explores a rationale of beauty today - exploding, redressing.
In an ever-changing world, beauty must echo the complexity of our era: this collection is a search for a reflective definition, a reactive address of beauty for modern times. Quotations of past styles emphasise the importance and meaning of history - they are embedded with the memories of the values of past times, reevaluated. Instead of rigid paradigms, there is a radical expansion, a rich plurality. Not beauty, but beauties, an embracing of unique characters, the joy of life.
The interventions forged between Miu Miu and contemporary artists are never devised as embellishment to fashion: independent and free, they evince a congruent intellectual viewpoint, each speaking about the present. This season, Qatari- American artist Sophia Al-Maria situates the Miu Miu show within a landscape of technological ruins, an imaginary history invented inside the Palais d’Iéna created in collaboration with OMA.
The character cast included Eddy Aldridge, May Andersen, Mame Bineta Sane, Petra Collins, Rosemary Ferguson, Amelia Gray Hamlin, Gigi Hadid, Troye Sivan, Liu Wen, Karolin Wolter and Cailee Spaeny who closed the show
