In the midst of New York Fashon Week, which is currently focused on the styles and trends for Fall, Miu Miu decided to interrupt the regularly scheduled program with a short film that brings their Spring 2013 collection to life.
Directed by Ava DuVernay and starring Gabrielle Union, “The Door” is one of the most visually pleasing films I have ever laid eyes on. Of course the clothes and accessories are amazing (I mean, what girl doesn’t love Miu Miu?). But it’s the cinematography, cast and music that catapults it to higher heights.
The storyline is centered around Union, who has experienced a horrible breakup. It is her circle of sister-friends, which includes Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye, Emayatzy Corinealdi and Goapele, that help her along the path to restoration all while wearing gorgeous Miu Miu frocks. The film also explicitly demonstrates how one can wear Miu Miu in almost every aspect of her life. For such a major, international brand to allow DuVernay to have such creative freedom, from selecting an all-black cast to including an impressive lineup of independent music artists on the soundtrack, is groundbreaking in its own right. Kudos to Miu Miu for setting, or shall I say, raising the bar.
That’s enough of me talking about it. Check it out for yourself.
And just as a point of reference, here is the Spring 2013 runway show:
Pretty much want everything in the collection, right?
Are you loving the film as much as I am?
