Tales from the Powder Room

Enter the world of Miu Miu Spring Summer 2011 via the most intimate of all female sanctums: the ladies powder room. The short is directed by Zoe Cassavetes and stars Audrey Marnay (she is definitely having a moment!); and it harks back to a time when bathrooms were still  elegant and sensuous places called powder rooms. This provides a surprising contrast to the inspiration behind the Miu Miu collection itself, which was the modern obsession with celebrity and fifteen minutes of fame but it works because it is so beautifully shot and is in keeping with designers current celebration of femininity.
