Paris Fashion Week Coverage: Miu Miu Fall 2013

Miu Miu closed the final day of Paris Fashion Week with a collection that proves the trend lead outerwear has taken for next season. With no lofty theoretical explanations at its core, the Miu Miu presentation rested simply on good fashion. Miuccia Prada struck upon a brilliant silhouette and repeated it throughout the show, and each time we saw it in new fabrics and colors, we nodded along to the smart evolution of the look.

The outline is simple: it starts with a drop shoulder, which rests beneath an extended lapel that folds back over the shoulders. It reaches a midi-length and even though the cut is generous, it is cinched at the waist with an elegant belt. Miu Miu repeated this cut on coats and dresses. Some were monochrome, others splashed with happy polka dots, others featured rivulets of contrasting ribbon embroidery running down the front, and most sported oversized buttons. Cargo pocket accents added an athletic air to the slim cut figures on the runway, and the zip-up turtleneck sweaters were a practical, but stylish fall statement piece. Layers came unusually in the form of dresses worn over patterned skirts. 19th century button boots, classic silk scarves that were knotted at the neck, and strip tights helped pad the Miu Miu looks with a vintage-inspired aesthetic. This wasn’t a challenging collection, it was simply pitch-perfect and well-styled. The machines at Miu Miu workshops are going to be quite busy in preparation for next season’s retail frenzy.
