Geometry, color, form, and content: fashion and cinema share the same basic artistic devices, making film the perfect medium to showcase a designer collection beyond the runway, and the realm of fashion a source of freedom for an auteur to express themselves in new, uninhibited ways. With roots going back to the silent period, the fashion film has become a distinguished genre unto itself. Enter Miu Miu, who since 2011 has commissioned work by some of the greatest female directors in the world, all intended for the big screen. We celebrate this unique collection of sublime short films by pairing each with a celebrated feature by the same director.
