Miu Miu's School of Beauty and Tragedy

Katie Brown

For Summer 2024, Miu Miu explored the connection between society and fashion with a collection that carried the students of last season into the modern world.

For the production, Miuccia Prada shared her codes with Qatari American artist Sophia Al-Maria, whose post-apocalypse vision plunged Auguste Perret's Palais d'Iéna into darkness. The effect was Shakespearean in a surreal sense, littered with connotations of drama and tragedy.The initial sound of crashing thunder and the vivid magenta images from the projector screens suggested a rather existential upheaval, which marked a kind of evolution.

While the last Miu Miu collection leant heavily into a scholastic aesthetic, this season was more technical and complex, exploring the "rationale" of beauty and dressing. Dropping their varsity appeal and adopting a laid-back, more casual appearance, the models were dressed in dignitary buttoned cardigans, embroidered dresses, navy blue and scarlet blazers, collared shirts and micro skirts, this time in bouclé or suede and decidedly more androgynous. The coats, men’s board shorts, oversized leather belts, relaxed polos, indigo denim jeans and scrunched suede jackets appeared washed and marked, tinged with the 1980s Californian spirit of gallant wear and tear. This was an insouciant show, encapsulating the brand's focus on functional design and wearability.

Miuccia Prada seemed to supply the new generation of Miu Miu followers with a wardrobe to explore and reflect on the world in which they live and learn.
