Discover MIU MIU‘s Spring Summer 2018 Return to Arcosanti advertising campaign featuring actress Elle Fanning joined by top models Adwoa Aboah, Cameron Russell, Edie Campbell, Faith Lynch, Olivia Anakwe, Oumie Jammeh, and Rianne van Rompaey. In charge of photography was Alasdair McLellan, with styling from Katie Grand, and creative direction by Giovanni Bianco. Beauty is work of hair stylist Anthony Turner and makeup artist Diane Kendal.
“Working with Arcology in mind, Alasdair McLellan returns to visualize the latest Miu Miu collection: clothing that shares a certain utopian utility with Arcosanti. The spartan yet wistful nature of the futurist community is explored through the repurposing of decorative floral pattering and plaid layered onto classic work-wear silhouettes. Set against awesome concrete infrastructure, supple materials are accented with gemstones and wicker, leather and lace – treasures discovered in the sand. The Southwestern desert, a landscape associated with both the utilitarian and the utopian, freedom and its harsh physical limitations, stretches as far as the possibilities of experimentation, whether in the pursuit of preservation, justice, community, design, or the liberty of free spirits.“
