Moroccan Artist Mariam Bennani Takes on MiuMiu

A Paris Fashion Week to remember

by

Miu Miu organised quite a show last night in the French capital of Paris. The Italian high fashion house took the City of Love on a trip down memory lane wanting to bring the noughties aesthetic back into our wardrobes. 

Blurring the barriers of gender in style, the wide palette of looks that were offered by the young label could compete with our favourite teenage brands. And we’re here for it. Through ultra-short skirts, trimmed tops all weaved in fashionably with some slick corporate wear, the interchangeable fits are explicitly setting the trend for the season to come. 

Many elements of the presentation were well worthy of being noted down and that’s starting with the decor surrounding the event. The stage was introduced with an ocular-shaped screen projecting a remake of the show with models strutting down the runway while focussing on the reactions of a casted audience through their wild facial expressions and small conversations (some were in fact in darija, Moroccan’s own Arabic dialect).  

Directed by the much-recognised Moroccan artist Meriem Bennani, the screening starred some stellar names including photographer Ilyes Grieb, stylist Cleopatra as well as singer Tiemeko. The short video, infatuated with references to the North African region, gave the show a much wanted Arab twist that is very refreshing to say the least. 

Another notable feature of the show were the models suited up in a new line of New Balance 574’s announcing the brand’s collaboration with the American sportswear brand. Introducing two colourways, white and beige, to the audience, the suave and sober pair of kicks are surely going to be on shelves soon and we can’t wait. 

With Paris Fashion Week now over, we’re excited to see which collections will be worn and torn around the world’s most influencing cities.
