Miu Miu Fall 2017 - Runway Review
March 7, 2017
Quirky was the word at Miu Miu, which drew to a close the last day of Paris Fashion Week with a color-rich collection that mixed 1940s and 1950s style in that inimitable Miu Miu way.
Transparent layers and bushy fur coats provided delightful contrasts. The decor was incredible. Prada had the entire venue — hall, chairs, pillars, floors, sweeping Art Deco staircases and all — enveloped in lavender faux fur of a curly, astrakhan-imitating kind.
The Miu Miu girls were an army clad in synthetically multi-pastel furry baker-boy hats, coats, and skirts; clashing psychedelic-print tunics and flares and oversized shouldered knit sweaters and skirts that harkened back to the 1940s and ’70s.
The postwar shawl collar silhouette was imagined in vividly colored fur with cinched waists. As for dresses, there were paillettes aplenty — short and skimpy with slinky lingerie slips twinkling with diamanté. Exaggerated hats highlighted a recurring bold palette first seen during the golden age of Parisian couture in the 1950s.
