Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Yesterday at Palais d’Iena in Paris, Miu Miu presented its fall/winter 2016 collection in “The Great Hall”—a venue designed by AMO, Rem Koolhaas’ research leg of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). A magical setting, there were large poufs that intermingled with chairs lining the main alleys of the Salle Hypostyle-like lounge. Informal seating allowed for guests to face each other, and for models to walk from one room to the next.
Through a parade of interesting looks, we saw a denim jacket graced with a portion of its top in leather, a few patches, five buttons, and large breast pockets. Following suit, we saw a denim-on-denim look with an asymmetrical skirt ruched on the side, partnered with a similar version of the previous jacket with a bit of leather up top, but this time, it was a fitted V-neck, three button, three pocket number. In between looks were scattered glimpses of new accessories, including a few handbags and delicate shoes.
Then, we caught sight of another matching set, but this time in tweed—a suit-like jacket showed flare with the undershirt’s white collar poking out, was cinched in at the waist with a floral waist belt, and paired with cropped, drop-crotch trousers with outward-facing buttons and black trim on the lower, inner leg. Other newly notable looks included: a purple dress that donned white ties on its shoulders; a denim-looking trench coat in a florally fun print with an elongated V-neck, side pockets, cuffed wrists, and two patches in the place of a left breast pocket; and an antique-like floral print jacket complemented by floral embellishments on the jacket’s lapel and shoulder tops, taken in at the waist by a floral belt atop a denim shirt.
It’s a denim, floral free-for-all for fall, and we’re certainly not complaining.
