Du Juan for Girl in Miu Miu Interviewed by Olivia Singer Look-02

Du Juan on her first Miu Miu encounter…

“The first time I encountered Miu Miu was in Shanghai, when I walked in the Fall/Winter 2011 show. I like the brand’s multiple personalities, that it is never restricted to one thing – and that, when I wear Miu Miu, I feel carefree and like myself.”

Du Juan for Girl in Miu Miu on her favourite Miu Miu outfit…

“I particularly like this collection’s mix of different textures, its warm and bright colours, and the three-dimensional flowers on the coats. The outfit that I’ve chosen to wear here is about layering; it allows you to look good all the time, whether you’re indoors or outdoors.”

Du Juan on embracing her acting career…

“I have been modelling for 14 years and have done pretty much everything in my career in the capacity of being a model. I’ve worked with the best bunch of people in the industry and for that I am very grateful, but I don’t want to repeat it indefinitely. When, by chance, a film found its way to me – the team, the script, the role – I felt good about it and wanted to try it. Luckily I did alright and, after that, many other films came to me… it happened quite organically. Inside, I still see myself as a model. Acting is my new interest and endeavor.”

Du Juan for Girl in Miu Miu on her love for Shanghai…

“Shanghai is the city I grew up in, so my family and my classmates live there and it will forever be my home. I’m not really someone who is fond of walking around without knowing where I’m going, so I spend a lot of time at my favourite restaurants: #AXinNoodleShop in Shanghai and #XinShengLongHotPot in Beijing. But the place where you will find me the most often is the swimming pool.”

Du Juan on how she spends her free time…

“When I have free time, I like to be at home, drinking tea, listening to music, watching films, being with my family. I also swim everyday – I’m very fond of it. Recently I also got into diving. I also love to read – Patti Smith’s book, Just Kids, is my favourite – or listen to music like Mark Knopfler.”

Du Juan for Girl in Miu Miu on her first Parisian experience…

“The first time I visited Paris was for Couture, in 2006. I particularly like the museums and the carousel in the Tuileries Garden and the sweets. One time I was invited by Mrs Prada to a private dinner at a fantastic restaurant called #Divellec. I loved the art deco design, the lighting, and the delicious food. It was a very memorable experience – and the dessert was amazing.”

Du Juan on becoming a ballerina…

“I started dancing ballet when I was 11, and the nine years I spent studying ballet at Shanghai Dance School are a big part of my memory: it was really a wonderful experience. I love its elegance and sense of purity, and the elegant aura of a ballerina, the expression of her body language, her sensitivity toward music… But, most importantly, ballet has taught me that in life one must have self-discipline, self-confidence, and a sense of self.”

Du Juan for Girl in Miu Miu on the #MiuMiuBeachClub

“I love the retro swimming suits from the #MiuMiuSS17 collection because I swim every day. And I just attended the Miu Miu Beach Club pool party in Beijing. There were so many great-looking cocktails, sweets, and a synchronized swimming performance. It was a lot of fun!”

Du Juan on what makes a Miu Miu girl…

“The Miu Miu girl is full of curiosity and courage. She is a spirit and she is a friend. She is radiant and warm. I am inspired by Mrs Prada’s constant exploration of the world, and that what she creates is never easily defined. Her Miu Miu world is individualistic and independent, dreamy and romantic, sexy and elegant, all at the same time.”
