Office for Metropolitan Architecture’s design studio AMO has delivered today another successful collaboration with Fashion label MIU MIU. To present the Miu Miu Spring Summer 2017 Womenswear collection fashion designer Miuccia Prada and her team worked with AMO to create a whimsical space. The set for the Paris Fashion Week catwalk was designed at the Palais d’Iena in Paris.
The theme was Synthetic Summer, this is how AMO described the collab: AMO’s design for the 2017 Spring/Summer Miu Miu show makes use of engineered materials to create an artificial summer landscape in Auguste Perret’s Palais d’Iena. The catwalk is contained inside a plywood box, constructed within the Salle Hypostyle. The audience sits on graduated platforms that emerge from the wooden background, set on either side of the linear runway. An interweaving pattern made of matte and shiny PVC covers the floor and catwalk, in places continuing up the tribunes and walls. A series of graphic illustrations recreates naive and colorful landscapes, reminiscent of summer settings.
