The Miu Miu Spring 2016 collection paid a visit to the past spanning the fifties to the seventies. Miuccia Prada built lean, polished silhouettes out of discordant pieces. The looks gave the impression of good girls/ladies in headbands and neat, tailored jackets over straight, secretary skirts, but Miuccia sent them appealingly off course via erratic colors, patterns and delicate perversions.
A short, boxy red leather jacket had diamond patterns down the front that clashed with a turquoise skirt with a raccoon fur tail trailing off. Sheer pretty-baby nightgowns looked deliberately naïve layered with primly buttoned-up shirts, skirts and a range of refined leather coats.
This season Miu Miu featured fur stoles with tails as well as shoes that veered between colorful, sparkly platform drag-queen dream boots, and bondage ballet flats bound with a bevy of straps.
