Can't afford Miu Miu? Me neither, but Massy Tadjedin 's film will do just fine

Posted by Liv Siddall,

It’s pretty much a given that a video look-book for Miu Miu’s AW12 collection, which has already spurred worldwide drooling, is going to be a thing of beauty. To celebrate the collection, Miu Miu have commissioned four up-and-coming women in the film industry to create four films entitled Women’s Tales. All magnificent in their own way, we were particularly caught by Massy Tadjedin’s It’s Getting Late, a short film starring well-respected female actresses such as Gemma Arterton and Patricia Clarkson getting ready to attend an intimate Zola Jesus gig. Watch as four women end their daily activities, slip into some evening-wear and head out on the town. Sounds cheesy, I know, but thanks to Zola Jesus’ haunting soundtrack, it’s kind of more on the creepy side and definitely does the required job, which is make those clothes look powerful, beautiful and wearable all in one go.
