All the Buzz in Fash­ion

Harper's Bazaar (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

Cast one look at Miu Miu’s lat­est col­lec­tion and you’d have never guessed that so­cial me­dia was the launch pad for Mi­uc­cia Prada’s creations. Af­ter all, the ri­otous melange of di­shev­elled bouf­fant hair­dos, acid wash denim and ex­ag­ger­ated drop-shoul­der blou­son jack­ets brimmed with an at­ti­tude that was more ’50s and ’60s than this dig­i­tal-fu­elled mil­len­nium we live in. But Mrs Prada’s thought pro­cesses are never lin­ear, and the idea that in­di­vid­u­al­i­ties are ex­pressed through dig­i­tal photo grids even­tu­ally led her and her team to the works of Karl­heinz Wein­berger. The pho­tog­ra­pher’s fa­mous book, Swiss-Rebels, and its vis­ual record of hard­core Elvis Pres­ley wor­ship­pers shaped the col­lec­tion’s med­ley of retro-look­ing coats, leather mini skirts, big-buck­led belts and funky boots.
