Miu Miu's Spring Collection Is For the Marcia Brady in You
Miuccia Prada's show might close out the season, but she doesn't have big shoes to fill. Instead, she sets the tone for the months ahead, sending us away with clothes that are spunky, but thoughtful too. If anything, Ms. Prada sets the standard for next Fashion Week, because nobody forgets a RTW runway like hers.
This season, Miuccia did not draw from any one era or design for any one type of woman, though this is always the case. While retro beach silhouettes (complete with pool caps some street style stars will wear) came right out of the '50s, throw on one of the furry robe coats or the day dresses with groovy floral appliqué, and it's a straight shot to the '70s. You might as well be Marcia Brady.
The sophisticated power women of the world, who love a look with a little style wink, will appreciate the sleek suiting: blazers fit to the curve paired with punchy-patterned pencil skirts and coordinates with candy-colored pinstripes. Meanwhile, if you like a little sex appeal, look to Gigi Hadid's hot shorts or the embroidered bustiers that you can wear over your clothes, or rather nothing at all.
The Miu Miu spectrum of style is perhaps best articulated with a look at the shoes. Two-toned platforms were sky high, for the performer, but classic flower slides were luxe and low key; cool, but not overpowering. Whether you stay grounded or soar to new heights, you will be wearing an It shoe — the Miu Miu brand promises that. Same goes for the bags — there will be just as many girls here for the new bucket silhouette as there will be for the textured-leather clutches that come in python or with ruffled edges.
