Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales #11: Seed

26.02.2016 | Fashion , Film | BY:

The eleventh instalment in Miu Miu’s Women’s Tales series comes from Camera D’Or-winning filmmaker Naomi Kawase, and is called Seed.

To celebrate the premiere of the latest in Miu Miu’s pioneering series of films, the brand held an exclusive screening in New York’s EN Japanese Brasserie on Hudson Street last week.

Guests included actress Emma Greenwell (pictured main – who appears in the latest issue of the Twin book) as well as Miu Miu’s spring campaign girl Julia Garner, Emily Ratajkowski, Harley Viera-Newton and Zosia Mamet.

Miu Miu describe Seed as: “a sentimental portrait of Asian femininity,” adding that Kawase depicts it as “primitive, primal and erotic at the same time”.

The film is a whimsical and poetic journey of Sakura Ando’s character¬†from Japan’s Nara to Tokyo, set to an evocative soundtrack composed by Skanknation.

The film, of course, features Miu Miu’s latest seasonal offering, but as with all of the others in this unique series, focusses on more than that. It is about a strong female narrative. It is at its core, a story told by women, and resoundingly for them.
