Miu Miu Resort 2017 Runway Collection
Once upon a time the building belonged to a grande horizontale, a courtesan (or, in modern parlance, a prostitute or sex worker) who was obviously highly successful, as there was no inch of the place that wasn’t either gilded or carved from marble. Anyway: These days, you take your fashion wherever it pops up, and in Miu Miu’s case, it was in an upper salon of this gent’s club, on dummies. Viewed in real time, the collection did not look so much like clothes directly inspired by a specific British music scene of 20 years ago. Miu Miu this season, as always, is a brand that emphasizes embellishment and print, and this collection was strong on both, from T-shirts to dresses to knits to hats. The styling here might not stir up nostalgia in anyone who was born in the ’90s—they’d be too young.
Still, all that scarcely matters, as by the time Resort hits stores worldwide it’s just going to look like a colorful series of fun pieces to absorb into an existing wardrobe.
