Miu Miu Fall-Winter 2013-2014 RTW Fashion Show
a certain frivolous and feminine French spirit, a nonchalant je-ne-sais-quoi, a chic version of the marinier stripes halfway between Pigalle and Deauville, Olivia and Popeye, bon-ton polka dots and sophisticated sportswear: the Miu Miu collection conjures all of this, a heterogeneous and intuitive mix that, blended and distilled through the ingenious creativity of Miuccia Prada, produces a layered collection that cites many sources but combines them all in an individual and elegant result.
Having been transformed in an urban setting thanks to the radical re-styling carried out by the OMA studio, the art deco halls of the Conseil Economique in Place de Iena provide the perfect scenery: the space is reduced in height through the use of metallic grids, an alienating move that makes it similar to an underground station inspired by Blade Runner

the silhouette is tapered and ultra feminine or hour-glass with focus on the waist. Coats have a long-line, double-breasted fastening and outsized revers inspired to the marinier style. Circle skirts with stripes or polka dots peep out from garments skimming the ankles. The urban and sporty inspiration leads to quilting cocoon shape bomber-coats cinched at the waist with wide belts while zipped overcoats come in fondant colors with polka dots
Belle Epoque style peep-toe booties in two-tone leather, shoes display an innovative use of straps, statement heel and chunky platform.
