Miucca Prada’s Historic Spring Collection for 2009

Miu Miu’s Spring 2009 Collection delves into the past.


Most of the time, we view fashion collections in a vacuum – separating the designs from their origins and historical significance. In her latest collection for Miu Miu, Miucca Prada aimed to create a collection that was, “an investigation of our history, of our European past.” Let’s open up our history books and see where this investigation leads.

From the dusty closets of Roman gladiators, Miu Miu takes a high-fashion concept and makes it sleek and straightforward. While this collection is wearable, and the inspiration behind it is intriguing, it is a little  lackluster. The redemption here is the amazing collection of bags that subtly became the accessories focus of the show.

Emerging Trends:
•    Heavy concentration on skirts and dresses. This is a “No Pants” collection.
•    Roman tile prints.
•    Pleated burlap skirts.
•    Simple t-strap and pointy heels.
•    Lots of strapless and sleeveless dresses.
