A still from “De Djess,” Miu Miu's latest installment of its "Women's Tales" series.

Miu Miu presents the ninth installment of its “Women’s Tales” series of short films. “De Djess,” directed by Alice Rohrwacher, continues the brand’s celebration of femininity in the 21st century with the brand’s modern approach to women’s fashion.

A look from the Miu Miu Spring collection stars in the film.

Across the film series, Miu Miu collections have become a cast of characters in their own right, playing alongside noted actresses and models, and in this case, Rohrwacher uses looks from the Spring collection to depict the surreal world of ordinariness she favors in her critically acclaimed films “Corpo Celeste” (2011) and the Cannes Grand Prix winning “The Wonders” (2014).

In “De Djess,” Rohrwacher poses many questions through a series of provoking visuals that center around dresses that wash ashore. As the director explains, “I felt it was right to give the lead role to a dress, and put myself inside.” The Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2015 collection finds its expression most articulately in dress “Number 328”, which literally has a life of its own, and a taste for women’s beauty that is less obvious and more ingenious.

The ongoing series of unique, short films, commissioned by Miu Miu, and directed by today’s most distinctive female filmmakers. They invent beautiful, strange worlds inhabited by women’s idiosyncratic imaginations.
