Sarah Mower, of Vogue.com highlights the best part of Miuccia Prada’s Miu Miu Fall 2014 ready to wear collection: it’s feminine and satisfyingly practical!
Miuccia Prada steps out on the ledge to showcase runway designs that have a sense of practicality to them, but she does so in a way that doesn’t compromise any sort of style or beauty. Let’s not undervalue the true brilliance of Miuccia Prada’s Fall 2014 collection. Who knew that coats could be this sexy? Her ability to make a windbreaker feminine is nothing short of spectacular and I’m sure, very much appreciated. She incorporates shine and shimmer, feminine pastel colors, and short hemlines in a way that is not just chic, but also very relaxed.
There is something to be said about a runway show that satisfies all your needs and desires. Miuccia Prada proves that there is no need to compromise functionality for fashion. She showcased cable knit sweaters that were laid back and beautiful.
My favorite is the pink, mauve, and white pullover sweater paired with a short red leather miniskirt. This outfit reconfirms that making a sweater look pretty and date-night worthy, is definitely attainable. Until viewing this collection I didn’t think coats could be portrayed in such an attractive light.
The collection ambitiously combined multi-colored patterns with solid colors to create a color-block effect. Each coat I saw made me even more eager to see the next one, until I was almost salivating in anticipation. All I can hope for now is that product developers will be inspired by this collection and will use it as their muse for creating next season’s in-store collections. If I have ever seen rain boots look this cute, I would have invested in a pair a long time ago. Cities that aren’t blessed by warm weather all year round, will rejoice to see coats that don’t drown out the shape of a woman with dull colors and lack of originality, and will be pleasantly surprised to see rain boots that have a high heel.
The color palette of Miu Miu’s collection is inspiring, refreshing, and freeing. The metallic pastel pinks, purples, blues, and gold are so decadently invigorating paired together in classy, yet seemingly effortless combinations. Thank you Miuccia Prada for reinstalling my faith in the potential of a windbreaker to look attractive. Like wine and cheese, this collections makes some of the best pairing choices to create outfits that are just the right amount of feminine, sexy, and cheerful.
