K I S S







Keep it simple, stupid.

Knee length shift dresses with sleeves just this side of short. Miuccia loves the 40's and I feel like she used to reference them quite a bit back in the 90's. It's the perfect way to revisit the 90's, not through actual mass trends but rather seeing the things that inspired you back then with new eyes. In a way its austerity belonged more in the Prada runway than at Miu Miu, but over the years Miuccia has proven that Miu Miu is really not a baby-sister label with a defined aesthetic. Its grown-up but still with a secret youth sensibility. Maybe in the bright colors or maybe because she put birds on things again or maybe because she layered lil' miniskirts with oversized bows over the dresses or maybe it was that fur bum warmer.
Whatever it is, it's minimal and womanly.
It's the best.

I fell in love with the silhouette & shoulder, but I know that I will look like a major bull-dyke if I attempt such. Le sigh.

i was totally on the fence with this collection. but i the looks you picked out convinced me i could pull it of. maybe not head-to-toe but as separates for sure.

Mainly, it was about proportion. Probably the best instantiation I saw of the oversizing trend. Like the 40s. Only on steroids.
