fall prêt-à-porter, paris: miu miu
by Jeremy Danté
as mariacarla bosono opened the FW11 miu miu show, broad shoulders & traditional style were seen with slight forms of modernization. the designs of miuccia prada always seem to lean toward this perception of 60’s vintage style. dandelion prints were seen alongside floral & bird prints; an aspect which registered with more classical style. the concepts themselves were nothing new, but the silhouettes that were adapted to each look are what allowed the collection to take on a greater role of innovation. metallic footwear & chic accessories assisted the collection, perfectly- adding the finishing touches on the polished collection that was thoughtfully executed. miuccia certainly knows how morph from super high end fashion, fashion that makes you think & commercialized forms of style that will sell, sell, sell. overall, a strong direction- even though a bit more tame compared to other collections. it’s fresh & young, but still timeless with slight trend included- expect editorial fire.
