Miu Miu Resort 2016 Collection
With most of the more adult oriented resort 2015 collections out of the way, we see pieces from the Prada subsidiary, the lovely Miu Miu fashion label, looking as awesome as we expected it to be. Miuccia Prada loves to have fun with her collections, particularly the one that takes on her nickname, this time around taking the fashion show to a whole different setting and giving us some of the crazy that the brand caters to. Think club event, complete with an extended cocktail hour after the first Miu Miu fragrance launch, the presentation of her pieces for the Miu Miu resort 2016 collection and a party that happily included Cassy and Craig Rochards, Seth Toxler, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell. It was an animal house and what could be better than that when showing off the spectacularly fun designs that have always been meant for Miu Miu. Between the pink margaritas and the DJ booth pumping up the music to the tee, it was a night to remember, surely. Slow music and fast; it matters not what was played for the attendees could not have had a more enjoyable environment to bask in.
If you want to see clothing, which reflect the chaotic, noisy and positively raucous feelings of a club night, look no further than the Miu Miu resort 2016 collection! Spontaneous and raw, the fun was just beginning and the ladylike retro of Miu Miu had been replaced with something much different from the fashion world. It was fresh, refreshed even, youthful and bold, the daring oozing from every stitch in fabric. Shiny and graphic, we see silhouettes that have been transferred on to us from the 1950’s, ’60s, and the vivacious ’80s. We have hazard stripes and wet looking surfaces, clashing prints and Lurex dresses. There are racoon tails that have been turned into fashionable earrings that trail past the elbows and tricolour cowboy boots that take the 1970s to a whole new level. While it may be bad for your feet to be wearing those pointy pumps, no one can say that they are not super stylish and worth the pain for a few hours. Just be wise enough to space out your use of these awesome pieces.
There was something very glamorous about it all and we can easily see the fingerprints of Muccia Prada on every single design, from the boxy blouses to the circle skirts, the English-check outerwear to the glossy leather on the shoulders and sleeves, the hold-pinched skirts in metallic leather and thigh skimming shift dresses; we see it all and it looks so very good to our untrained eyes! Between the star-studded party and the intriguing garments showcased in the middle of the club scene, with a punkish spirit and loud photo prints, it was certainly a night to remember. The fun never ends when you are with the Lady Prada and this was proven tenfold as we noticed quite a few actors and actresses among the throng as well. What could be more entertaining than a Miu Miu collection release anyhow?
