Miu Miu

Miu Miu Cruise 2012
Milan: Voluminous 80s-inspired silhouettes, festive confetti prints and piled-on costume jewelry made for a playfully bourgeois mood at Miu Miu C/R 12. Sleeves and skirts were pouffy, with ruched shoulder seams and bubbled hems, and modest necklines were balanced by plenty of bare leg. Although ensembles were based around prim items and sweet details (like sweater sets and Peter Pan collars) there were rebellious elements sprinkled throughout; feminine blouses were styled with leather pencil skirts and dainty nude underthings were intentionally visible beneath unlined lace babydolls. Similar to big sister label Prada’s C/R color palette, Miu Miu offered powdery pastels mixed with electric brights. –Whitney Kessler
