As always, Miuccia Prada has created a line that redefines the style of glamourous and youthful women with her nickname Miu Miu label. Her S/S 2009 collection worked Ms. Prada’s quintessential quirkiness to perfection; the models somehow looked effortlessly sophisticated in tattered burlap tops and pleated aprons, some in deep red, aborigine, or streaked with graffiti. The collection took a more contemporary turn when the burlap morphed into a shiny satin that made theses dresses certainly worthy for a night on the town. The looks lent their way into a parade of printed, pleated dresses resembling classic European paintings and mosaics. We loved the styling idea of contrasting a short and simple black skirt with a longer intricately painted apron – very chic, very Italian. The belt trend has been with us for a while now, and we’re almost ready to move onto to a new variation- perhaps it could be Miuccia’s “grembiuli” — after all, what Miuccia says, goes.
