Miuccia Prada and MIU MIU officially wrap up the SS17 runway season with the label’s Paris Fashion Week show presented today at Palais d’Iena in Paris. The show space was redesigned to match the collection with a “Synthetic Summer” set masterfully designed by AMO the prolific design office of OMA architecture practice. This time Miu Miu teams up with the famed stylist and LOVE Magazine Editor in Chief Katie Grand while in charge of the makeup on the runway was the famed Pat McGrath.
AMO’s design for the 2017 Spring/Summer Miu Miu show makes use of engineered materials to create an artificial summer landscape in Auguste Perret’s Palais d’Iena. The catwalk is contained inside a plywood box, constructed within the Salle Hypostyle. The audience sits on graduated platforms that emerge from the wooden background, set on either side of the linear runway. An interweaving pattern made of matte and shiny PVC covers the floor and catwalk, in places continuing up the tribunes and walls. A series of graphic illustrations recreates naive and colorful landscapes, reminiscent of summer settings. – said AMO and MIU MIU pr team.
