- Miu Miu
- Paris Fashion Week Fall 2012
At first glance one can clearly identify the inspiration behind Miuccia Prada’s latest collection for Miu Miu: Menswear and the 70s.
Taking a cue from its big sister Prada, at Miu Miu it was all about the pantsuit, this time in bold, retro prints in jewel tones, raspberry, tan, royal blue and various brown hues. The garish prints on the suits purposefully clashed with the dress shirts that I am sure if you took away from the looks would be quite nice. This also goes for the bags, accessories and shoes that I am sure will all be quite popular.
Thus far during fashion month we have seen many menswear inspired items and I have been waiting for a collection featuring this inspiration to “wow” me and sadly this one did not. However, due to the immense dedication that fans have for Miu Miu I am sure that this will end up being someones cup of tea.
In my opinion, the makeup was quite hideous and overall the collection was very disappointing and boring. I am always a lover of fun prints and clashing but many of the garments went beyond the acceptable amount of clashing. For me the saving grace were the linked shift dresses that were styled over collared shirts that closed the show.
So what did you think of this season?
