Spring style – Miu Miu’s latest collection brings back ladylike chic
Posted on April 02 2013
The House of Prada has always been synonymous with refined and at times understated elegance as well as exquisite and extraordinary detail. All you have to do is look back at last year’s Met Gala which honored Miuccia Prada and her accomplishments in fashion. The exhibit featured Prada’s designs from the late 1980s to the present, which meant a lot of Prada frocks on the carpet. From Carey Mulligan’s gold and silver paillete halter dress to Diane Kruger’s feathered violet number and Gwyneth Paltrow’s metallic mini, it was a night filled with some of the House’s most fascinating creations. While the well established brand has flourished over the years, it’s younger sister Miu Miu (an homage to Miuccia’s nickname) has created a niche by not only harvesting the elegance of the elder Prada brand, it has also incorporated a certain “chic” as well some “ladylike edge”.
A few weeks ago, the Rodeo Drive Miu Miu store in Beverly Hills unveiled what the brand has in store for spring, and it was certainly a mouth watering experience to say the least. Gorgeous pastel leather coats, dyed fur, beautiful stoles and exquisite silks immediately grab your eye. With many of the pieces flown in from Milan, it was hard to ignore the detail that went into creating each look that any girl would be excited to call her own.
In the midst of all the skin baring looks du jour, Miu Miu has separated itself by heralding a return to ladylike chic. Far from boring, the collection features pale and understated colors with a personality of their own. For the bohemian chic California girl, colorful platforms in pink, lime green and coral channel the stylish 60s. Crinkled silk blouses and dresses create effortless looks for the on-the-go girl while paint splatter print dresses easily take the working girl from day to night.
