The sailor-style finds its way into Miuccia Prada’s latest ensemble. Recreating the classic summer concept with a contemporary, fresh and ironic twist, the Maritime collection by Miu Miu is just what you need for the season!
The edition combines typically masculine elements such as the marinière collar, broad shoulders, and practicality with feminine and prim details such as lace, bows, ruffles, softly rounded sleeves, V-necklines, and jewel sandals. The color palette includes marine blue, white, pale pink, and red, with materials ranging from satin pois, popeline, and cotton denim.
For the collection’s campaign, Miu Mui has collaborated with Lotta Volkova for the styling and commissioned the video and advertising to Johnny Dufort. It features models Elisa Löhr, Nina Pronk, Shade, Shin Hyeon Yi, and Topsy, each donning the maritime pieces in style.
Commenting on the ensemble, Miu Miu on Instagram (in a caption to its latest post) wrote: ‘Silhouetted against twin expanses of blue – the sky and the sea – the #MiuMiu crew of feminine sailors are captured by Johnny Dufort, poised on the concrete ramparts of the Plage de Bon-Secours at Saint-Malo – a bathing pool jutting into the sea, man meeting nature.’
It further read, ‘At this point of embarkation, where land meets water, this Miu Miu crew gazes out to the distance in anticipation – of a new beginning, a different season, a different perspective, broadened horizons. As ever, these Miu Miu women are part of a collective, a group – here, they are a fleet, an admiralty, their clothing unifying them, signifying their bond.”
