Miu Miu scores with yet another bold collection full of want-it-now shoes.
Miu Miu’s gold-class ticket to the most desirable shoes
In the spirit of creating a collection that was fun, free, and slightly zany, Miuccia Prada dotted and striped the runways with neon hues and sweet pastels. Little scarves were tied around sailor collars and colourful patterned skirts peeked out from under jackets. As expected, the shoes played a starring role. From gorgeous glitter sandals to exquisite bird-print platforms, Miu Miu’s shoes have always reflected the essence of its collections but pushed to the extreme of fashion-forwardness, giving them instant collector’s-item status. Autumn/Winter’s footwear was no different. Large, heavy, and bright, they balanced the slim, elongated lines of the silhouette and grounded the whimsicality of the multi-patterns. Taken off the runway, these gold peep-toe sandals with thick blue straps are actually much more wearable. They will no doubt lend new-season coolness and modernity to the retro silhouettes currently taking over fashion, and the smooth, curved heel gives them an off beat, inimitably cartoonish quality that is so delightfully Miuccia.
