ENTITLED, Toying With Elegance, the AW20 Miu Miu collection this season spoke of 80s Glamour and youthful rebellion. Held in the concrete surroundings of Palais d’Iena on the last day of Paris Fashion Week, Miuccia’s models graced the repeat-print carpeted runway, lit with soft pink led-lights in true Miu Miu fashion.
The show opened with a series of crushed satin dresses in emerald, tangerine, lemon and blush, each paired with their very own platform Mary-Janes and embellished opened-toed pumps. Creased and wrinkled like un-pressed dry cleaning, the gowns embodied effortless, “just thrown on” charm.
The cocktail coat made a bold appearance on the runway, with floor-grazing, double-breasted, woollen pieces ornamented with chandelier embroidery around cuffs and collars. Cut thigh-high and styled with half scoop leather gloves, this seasons coats provided us with a heavy dose of outwear as eveningwear.
Crystal embroideries flickered under the lights on mesh skirts and shift dresses throughout the collection. Not forgetting to mention the equally star-studded cast, with 16-year-old rising star Storm Reid opening the show and as expected the Hadid sisters.
Looks were complimented by extravagant cat-eye make up and loosely finger-rolled locks. Finished off with glistening hair accessories and jewellery, all replicas of Mrs Prada’s own personal collection.
