Miuccia Prada turned out quite the visual spectacle of smart and gorgeous garb for Paris Fashion Week. The designer drew much of her inspiration from the bratty and beautiful John Waters‘ character Dawn Davenport in Female Trouble, and the end result is most magical. Female rebellion was alive and well in Paris, taking on 60s forms in Sunday styles, perfect for showing up late to church and bee-lining it straight to confession.
The designer built this memorable collection around a favorite staple of hers—the housecoat—and reworked it in many fabulous forms for Miu Miu spring/summer 2015. Bucol couture fabric replaces everyday polyester on mid-length and shorter coat styles with colors ranging from creamy white to scarlet red, even plaid and suede—the list goes on. Paired perfectly with the housecoat and taking a pristine page out of Water’s 60’s era film are an array of pencil skirts in various lush fabrics, colors, prints, and textures capped off with a wide, clashingly brilliant belt. Tops are cropped and sleeveless—again, invoking that 60’s rebellion, but beyond pretty with delicate ruffles, dainty buttons, and various necklines. Miuccia finished each look with stylish bowling bags and little bowed mules. This collection is perfect for youngish, smart women that crave a little sin in their style and have a Masters in wardrobe maintenance.
