Elle Fanning, Sonia Ben Ammar, Elsa Brisinger, Karen Elson, Birgit Kos, Carolyn Murphy, Mayowa Nicholas, Ellen Rosa, and Lara Stone star in Miu Miu‘s Spring Summer 2017 Suddenly Next Summer video campaign shot by fashion photographer Alasdair Mc McLellan.
“Opening to the swinging sounds of big band jazz, the film is an unfiltered dose of enthusiasm and joy as seen through the stylistic lens of home movies and mid-century newsreels. Fanning, alongside a cast including Karen Elson, Caroline Murphy, and Lara Stone, laugh and play as waves crash upon the shore, all the while narrated with a dry enthusiasm by a voice off-screen. Borrowed from a 1940 British Pathé story on bathing costumes, the narrator offers up commentary that is somehow both anachronistic and current. It’s all — as the voice reminds us — “very tasteful, very neat.”
