Miu Miu Made a Short Film About Sisterhood

Miu Miu.
Plus skateboarding, smashing the patriarching, and sparkles.

Miu Miu - a.k.a the sister brand to Prada - has always been a powerful microphone for young female voices, images, and feelings.  From their continuing collabs with powerful ladies like Chloe Sevigny and Lupita Nyong'o, this is a brand that goes out of their way to speak to girl-focused campaigns and collections.

Enter their Women's Tales project, a film series exploring the contours of youth and identity from a female perspective.  Directed by Crystal Moselle, the twelfth installment was just dropped today and follows a 17 year old skateboarder who finds identity in a group of supportive female friends who she meets in NYC.  From the struggle to fit in, to the euphoric feelings of belonging and togetherness, the film perfectly captures universal experiences of femininity in an authentic way that we rarely see on screen.

Watch the full film below.

I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
