“Miu Miu feels like a family to me,” says the actress Dakota Fanning, introducing her directional debut, Hello Apartment; the 15th chapter of the fashion house’s delicious all-female series, Miu Miu Women’s Tales, first launched in 2012.
The 23-year-old joins a unique club that elsewhere boasts Chloë Sevigny, Miranda July and Ava DuVernay, with a short that explores her own relationship with her first apartment. “It is a shrine to experiences,” she notes, adding a no doubt familiar opinion on what happens when you leave, “I’ve a hard time letting go. What happens to all those memories?”
Premiered earlier this week with an exclusive screening at London’s Curzon Cinema Mayfair, the film stars Eve Hewson as the pink-haired protagonist Ava, and Tom Sturridge as the romantic interest Stephen. Watch it – fall for the many Miu Miu looks, the XL sized wine glasses and the old school Mac computer – here, now.
