Discover Miu Miu‘s Spring Summer 2017 Suddenly Next Summer advertising campaign lensed by fashion photographer Alasdair McLellan, with styling from Katie Grand. Stars of the session are Elle Fanning, Carolyn Murphy, Karen Elson, Lara Stone, Birgit Kos, Ellen Rosa, Elsa Brisinger, Mayowa Nicholas, and Sonia Ben Ammar. Beauty is work of hair stylist Anthony Turner and makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo.
“As in last season’s “Found Narratives”, McLellan deconstructs editorial tropes, undercutting an exuberant romp with pensive isolation. The metaphor of the ocean—mysterious, vast, and deep—is overlaid with pictures of uninhibited joy. The collages, composed as they are of multiple layers of thin images, reinstate the notion of the constructed identity: the creative role every woman takes on when imagining and organizing her public-facing life. The Miu Miu girl is certainly self-assured but she is also self-aware: she knows that her fantasy beach images spur engagement even as the story behind them is as deep and as profound as the ocean.“
