MIU MIU CLUB RETURNS TO PARIS
Continuing a tradition established in celebration of its Croisiere collections, Miu Miu presented Croisiere 2018 with a new iteration of the Miu Miu Club in Paris on 2 July 2017 at 9pm. The club opened with a performance by self-described “fetish rapper” Tommy Genesis, followed by a fashion show set to a soundtrack by Frederic Sanchez.
The location was the Parisian seat of the historical Automobile Club de France—the world’s first automobile club—reinterpreted by AMO. Originally founded in 1895, the club was moved several years later from a location near the Paris Opera to an august site on the Place de la Concorde originally designed by the preeminent Ange-Jacques Gabriel for King Louis XV and reimagined by Gustave Rives, a French architect known for his “opulent eclecticism.”
For Miu Miu Club 2017, the space was customized for innovation over incubation. AMO transformed the library into a car-themed lounge that reconciles the progressive spirit of the club with the grandeur of the late Rococo. For the presentation of the collection, the models, illuminated by theatrical follow spots, traced a graphic circuit that linked the stage and the lounge. True to the Miu Miu tradition, glittering young stars composed individual scenes, collaging sounds and styles over an atmosphere rich with creative history, while guests frequented the bar, dining room, and spectacular terrace that overlooked the luminous city.
Guests included Elle Fanning, Emma Greenwell, Gwendoline Christie, Milla Jovovich, Millie Brady, Stacy Martin, Teresa Palmer, Anna Brewster, Alexa Chung, Aymeline Valade, Chiara Ferragni, Doutzen Kroes, Elena Perminova, Josephine de la Baume, Lauren Santo Domingo, Leaf Greener, Mariana Ximenes, Natasha Goldenberg, Sofia Sanchez de Betak, Tina Leung, Veronika Heilbrunner.
