Af­ter Hours

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.
