Italian brand MIU MIU presented their Spring Summer 2021 Mind Mapping campaign starring nonconforming and strong women lensed by the legendary fashion photographer Steven Meisel. In charge of styling was Lotta Volkova, with creative direction from M/M (Paris). Stars of the campaign are Canadian multimedia artist Allison Katz, American singer and classical multi-instrumentalist Kelsey Lu, British actor Emma Corrin, and models Chloé and Topsy.
“Allison is primarily a painter, but also works with objects, posters and installations. Chloé is currently attempting to obtain her pilot license. Emma is an actor known for her portrayal of a princess in a popular streaming series. Kelsey Lu began studying musical composition at the age of 6, learning to play piano, violin and cello. Topsy enjoys molding clay as much as she does modeling fashion.
Binary and yet paradoxical, complementary and yet contrasting, each set of images engages in a dialogue with each other, and the observer. They are windows into the worlds of this multitude of Miu Miu women – maps of their minds.” – from Miu Miu
