‘I’m really obsessed with Film Noir,’ says the artist, model and actor Zaina Miuccia. ‘I love the glamour of it. Barbara Stanwick and other 1940s and 1950s stars have influenced me a lot.’ And for Zaina, who resides in west London’s Notting Hill, the art of performance is all-encompassing. ‘I love that Tilda Swinton doesn’t call herself an actress – she calls herself a performer. My goal is to perform, which inevitably means to entertain.’ Here, Zaina – along with a group of other tastemakers – puts her own spin on the brand’s latest capsule collection of pieces, reimagined in a monogram designed in collaboration with graphic designer Peter Saville.

It’s Nigeria, but it’s also London. Home is where I feel good. I’ve spent most of my adult life here in London, going back and forth between Nigeria and Atlanta, and I was born in Washington, DC. Being a Londoner to me means seeing no differences. It’s meeting all sorts of people from all over the world, all in one place. It’s a very special place. Paris can be home for me, too; I spent three years living there in the French countryside. I’ve always sort of had a surf-girl thing going on, which started on a trip to Brazil. I wear a lot of cowry shells, which people wear a lot in Nigeria. I love Fela Kuti’s wives from the Kalakuta Republic – they always wear a lot of shells and beads. My mum’s influenced me a lot style-wise, too. She was one of the first people to have dreads in Nigeria and she wears these amazing hats and headpieces.’
