WTF: Miu Miu Fall 08

Dear Miuccia:
This hurts me more than it hurts you. I never thought, in my wildest dreams, that I would have to make such a post about you. I've been dwelling on it for days, coming back to the collection and clicking through it again and again to see if I missed something. But I haven't, I just haven't. And to show that I am not making this up, here's a list of my grievances:

Not only is this unsightly (I mean, conceptual), but it's the most ill-fitting piece of anything I've ever seen on a runway. Also, nothing gives me the creeps more than knee-length leggings. *shudders* I will admit, that embroidering the initials of the models on the clothes was a cool idea (and will they offer this service at the stores come fall?)

Uh, what? I can only see Lindsay Lohan wearing this. Make what you will of that.

In keeping with the sports theme of the collection, here is a fancy basketball jersey. Worn with a satin skirt. This seems like a kooky outfit out of Carrie Bradshaw's closet, except it wouldn't be one of her brighter moments.

Remember that Project Runway challenge with Levi's? When Jillian got grilled cause she put too many little red flag thingies on the jacket? That's what comes to mind when I look at this. Except bigger and just... wrong.



Ah, but it's ok Miuccia. I still love you! You know why? Because you didn't forsake me!

You didn't forsake me when you created these heels with the most perfect architectural heel ever. (And in navy!)

You didn't forsake me when you created this weird pair of Lisa Frank meets Dada super rad pumps!

And you certainly didn't forsake me when you brought back the bowling bag, because you know about my obsession with the 90's.

And keeping that in mind, and your awesome collection for Prada all I can say is: it's ok, there's always next season.

Sincerely,
Laia

PS. Who am I kidding? I only live for shoes anyways.
