Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot (with models Daphne Groeneveld, Ginta Lapina, Siri Tollerod and Lindsey Wixson), the Fall-Winter 2010 Womens Miu Miu ad campaign is a washed-out 80s acid trip of sorts, one replete with heavy eyeshadow and pulled-back hair.
And while there’s nothing wrong with the apparel (I get the whole schoolgirl-Lolita vibe), the bags are in a class of their own. The first 3 ain’t bad at all, especially the classic Bow Satchel in green.
The last one however (priced at SGD2140 by the way), with the huge chunky front-lock clasp similar to the one Ms Lott was photographed carrying in London, somehow failed the semester in my opinion.
Here’s another variation of the same bag but with embellished metal blooms that retails for SGD2690. It’s not exactly hideous (and on a good day I’ll even say it is cute), but I can’t quite put my finger on it. So tell me guys, what do you think?
