Continuing the dark mood seen in the autumn/winter 2012/13 Miu Miu collection, the Italian fashion house updated the vamp look with paint-splash flower prints, latex material and oversized furs. Miuccia Prada opened the Miu Miu show with a selection of loose-fitting, denim-like pencil skirts with matching wide, angular jackets in a basic metallic navy palette. The outfits were lightened with off-white, loose-fitting bralet tops. Monochrome fur stoles were gradually introduced into the collection in a variety of patterns, while dark navy fur coats slipped onto the runway almost unnoticed as they were camouflaged by the matching clothing.
Sporadic paint-splash prints adorned loose-fitting midi skirts and casual cropped-sleeve sweaters. As the show gained momentum the fur stoles became more vibrant and flamboyant, alongside loose latex pieces in neutral greige and rosy pink. For a modern, ladylike look, long-line latex jackets were matched with simple above-the-knee dresses in neutral colours. To bring the show to a close, varying shades of red joined the runway, from mid-toned fur jackets to scarlet latex mid-length skirts.
Playing on the paint splatter trend, Miu Miu’s models showcased calf-length masculine jackets with a single button at the neckline for an alternative take on loose, open outerwear.
