meow meow miu laia

I was completely feeling Miu Miu this season. Dudes, you KNOW I want pictures of naked people printed on MY pants!
Untitled 5Untitled 8
The colors were so spot on. Perfect shades of nude and light pink, navy and black and light blue, and red every now and then. And towards the end things got a bit more BLINGy, and some weird crumpled paper bag shoulders were added (all also rad.) There are some shows where I just want to go in and alter everything and jab pins into the models' backs but Miu Miu was so clean cut and perfect.
Untitled 3
And looking at the collection in a less fangirly, "OMG CATS!1" way (I LOVE the cats!), the concept was applied without being too vague (such as, I hate to say it, but Prada's..) or too literal. It was all about youth. And not youth as in Miuccia Prada saying "The Miu Miu girl is young and flirty, confident, loves to party and hang out with her friends, but is also someone you can talk to!" But more...hm..
Untitled 2
It all is very innocent feeling with the humorous prints and colors and braids but there still is a really interesting tension in all of the looks, both individually and next to each other, that isn't necessarily "youthful" but is still very much a part of youth. I think that's what I mean?Untitled 6
Oh, and on a funny note, I honestly thought for a sec that the look third from the left was supposed to be like "YOUTH-not being able to fill a bra." Oops? Seriously though!
Anyway more perfection:Untitled 7
I have to go hound my sisters to see if they have any of these since I didn't get many years of the 90's. Wait, they would've been like, 8. So nevermind. To the thrift store...

PS. Marry me, Miuccia.

Wonderful, I love that you are teaching me to look at fashion differntly.
I know for fact 3 months ago I would have told you "everything on that runway was hideious and that nobody would ever wear it so why design it?" haha I feel like I've grown into a new woman :P

Wonderful, you just put these things into such a context where I can understand what they are trying to represent.

Ha you are simply wonderful :)

hannahlizabeth said...

this collection was so rad! and the shoes make me proud to be a 90s kid - i dedicated pretty much a whole post to those last two photos haha.

love your description of youth not being able to fill a bra, to be honest i didn't notice that until you pointed it out!

The collection was amazing! I simply love your blog. It's so cool seeing someone my age(a little bit older) having a love for fashion as well!

YES! This is my favorite collection from all of the fashion weeks! My undying love for cats and being a 90's kid made this instantly appealing, I especially love the prints on the collars.

jeannie said...

Thanks for posting the shoes just kill me, owwww ahhhhh

Rainelle said...

*waving hands* 90's over ooh ooh. but for real, I LOVE those shoes, makes me want to drool. *drools* and the heel is so thick, I definitely run around school in those :D now i need to find a cheaper version of those!

Maddie said...

so amazing

Samantha Nandez said...

I dig the colors and I love the shoes, most the prints are great. But I could do without the nekkid lady silhouette.

Sondra said...

The cats. Perfection.

brandi said...

Very nice collection. Your blog is really unique. :]

annie cat said...

Can I haz prints? I do love the color schemes though.

daisymay said...

OMG those daisy print shoes are bloody amazing!!! Dont think you can pick those up in a thrift store though, mores the pity. I really love the swallow print material too, its so sweet, but still smart on the trousers. Brill collection!

Antonia said...

The shoes! Oh the shoes!!

Emilie said...

I see your point about the elements of youthfulness in the collection. I also do not understand the look you referred to with the bra-ish garment. What is that!? Finally, want those shoes. So cool.

Isabel said...

Miu Miu. Naked people on pants. Cats.

Bad internet poetry spam, or totally awesome runway collection? You decide.

Floren said...

wow! The details are beautiful!

The Spelunkers said...

shoes--> empire records? maybe a bit of a stretch but whatevs

Soren Lorensen said...

bling on the clothes?

wow, that's so much easier than having to wear your bling and your clothes, like, seperately

Lightning Heart said...

what a gorgeous collection!

Mr. Jerry Seguin said...

this was my absolute favorite collection of the season! BRAVO!!!! XO JS

blukats said...

All I can say about this collection is when I saw it, it made me want to buy parts of it. I think when a designer does that, they definitely have done their job. Love it!

(needs cat shoes like yesterday)

Eline said...

I have a naked Walter Van Beirendonck and simplified penises on my dress. It feels very liberating.

Do I feel like collecting every piece of clothing with nudity on now? Yes.

The shoes are stunning. I like the black and white floral prints. it looks very hip, it’s absolutely very striking.

Offida said...

I love the prints and colours, but otherwise it's too young for me. Seriously, you can't wear any of this if you have any boobs!

B a la Moda said...

I am not that fond of the naked girls print but the rest of the collection I think is stunning!

you are wonderful, the blog i s cute and it's pretty nice reading. Yeah!

Roz said...

Wonderful observations! I always feel like I want to reply with something equally insightful and witty in return, but its really quite hard to think!
I love the mainly monochrome theme of this collection, and the prints have a very retro feel to me..
I was just wondering if you did ever get my email about the designs I did based on you? If you have time at all, I would be really happy if you could give me an opinion. But I do understand that you do get a begillion emails or something a day...

Very good article. If you have time and just have a look at http://goodwatches.blog.com !

Cassiemarie said...

If you have trouble finding shoes like those,you could always find a pair of black leather platforms at the thriftstore and use acrylic paint to paint on some flowers - acrylic will stick to leather pretty good, and you could always touch them up if they get scuffed.
Also, I love your blog, and you!! Keep it up! :)
