It wasn’t just the models that were dressed in bold patterns for Miu Miu’s AW20 runway show in Paris – studio AMO covered its restrained setting Palais d’Iena with patterns and bright colour too.
The 1927 Auguste Perret-designed landmark was given a colourful make-over for the spectacle, which saw its architectural surfaces ‘hijacked’.
AMO’s first intervention was in the entranceway, where the original white floor was covered by a bright red carpet, detailed with an art deco fan motif that extended throughout the Palais and its Grand Staircase.
Each of the building’s columns was encased in a metal frame fitted with LEDs illuminated in pink light, and anchored by a velvet plinth. Mirrors extended patterned runway seemingly to infinity, ‘challeng[ing] the order and precision of modernism,’ said AMO.
