Damn the dinner party and sod the speakeasy—miu Miu has put clubbing firmly back on the agenda. This time round it’s going to be louder and sweatier than ever
“I’ve got the power!” blasted the hook from the 1990 hit by Snap as models stomped purposefully along an elevated scaffolding runway built around the Palais d’iéna in Paris, which was transformed for one night into the Miu Miu Club. Miuccia Prada sent PVC layers, ultra-mini minidresses, graphic slashes of black, yellow, blue and red, and sweaty hairstyles reminiscent of an all-nighter charging down the runway in a wild party thrown to launch the resort collection and the house’s first fragrance. The strip lighting, metal grids and PVC sheets that decorated the space recalled late nights thudding into early mornings, while the clothing, inspired by the partygoers of the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s, was the sort of flirtinducing, dance-ready rebellious garb your father wouldn’t dream of letting you leave the house in. Clothes like these are designed to dominate a dance floor, so why wait? Dress up to get down—only you get to decide when disco is dead.

You thought the It bag was dead? Think again. Prada launched the Inside bag, named for the secret zippered leather bag nestled inside, to much fanfare in the middle of last year. This season, the house has reimagined the boxy creation with a graphic spin. Clash it with prints or let it pop against neutrals. Whatever you do, get your name on that waiting list.
