Miu Mui's web series of fashion short films just got a bit more interesting. The brand's latest episode for “The Women's Tales,” a project of commissioned works from renowned female directors across the globe, features the works of African American director Ava DuVernay. The luxe film is filled with surprise as it stars Gabrielle Union as a character dealing with the depression of her failed marriage. It also highlights her wearing many of the brand's latest clothing collection.
Throughout the film, other African American actresses, including Alfre Woodard, Adepero Oduye, Emayatzy, and singer Goapele play a motivating role to help re-build Union's happiness.
According to Ava, “In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves. Eventually, we witness our heroine ready to walk through the door on her own. The door in the film represents a pathway to who we are.”
