Hailey Bieber and Adut Akech have been tapped to star in Miu Miu’s fall/winter 2019 campaign.
The top models front the Italian fashion label’s latest marketing imagery, which was shot at the Paws Up ranch in the Montana state countryside by photographer Eddie Wrey and directed by stylist Katie Grand.
One shot sees Hailey and Adut pose in floral print dresses with furry scarves and clutch leather handbags, while another close-up snap depicts them standing together in a grassy paddock.
Regarding the concept behind the shoot, a Miu Miu representative commented that the idea was to capture “an exploration of youth and the great outdoors”.
“It is a universal landscape of open skies, wide horizons, infinite possibilities – of idyllic landscapes and elysian fields, of immersion in nature and strength in numbers,” they stated. “Camouflaged in camouflage, laid against rural panoramas of field and forest illuminated by the first blush of summer, these pictures express a yearning for escape, a turn to the natural, a freedom.”
Among the other models to appear in the photoshoot, which is set in the golden hour, are Jean Campbell, Abby Champion, Tang He, Meghan Roche, and Aliet Sarah.
Group shots see the models standing in a shallow river and sporting retro print floral dresses as well as sitting together in a field while outfitted in party dresses and costume jewellery.
“The spirit of this band of women, of their shared stories and relationships, is expressed through pictures composed like spontaneous snapshots, capturing intimate moments of bonding, of connections forged, charting an ever-evolving quest. They are a community at one, in turn communing with Mother Nature. Their confidence, their sovereignty – is at the fore,” the representative added.
