Miu Miu’s chic 1960s-inspired coats are paired with shiny leather mini skirts in turquoise and lipstick red. Thrown in the mix are wooly tights, suede lace-up thigh-high boots and patent leather Mary Janes. Though the look is curiously heavy given the season, one need only strip off the tights and unbutton the coats to enjoy the freshness of Miu Miu’s Spring/Summer 2014 offerings. In the mix are suede skirt and jacket combinations that were decorated with colorful face silhouettes and flowers (signature Prada), crystal and fringed embellished printed slip dresses, and leather toppers printed with cats, fish and birds. Schoolgirl styling aside, Miu Miu’s bright palette and cheerful prints are given a luxurious finish with exotic fabrics and crystal fringes – bringing a richness and depth to a collection that might be written off as merely “cute” at first glance.
