Miu Miu SS13- Cropped tops & fur for a femme fatale
Miu Miu SS13: Cropped tops & fur for a femme fatale
There is a reason why Miu Miu is always the last big show of Paris Fashion Week and it was exactly because of it that I decided to watch the streaming online, which I have barely done this season. At first, I was totally taken with the venue chosen. It looked almost like a parliament room made of polished wood, the runway flanked by doric-inspired columns. As soon as the show started it made sense to me – it was a parliament alright, and Miuccia was about to do her personal coup d'état.
It was as surprising as it was interesting that Miu Miu took the 50's as inspiration because so many brands and designers have done it, including Prada, over the last few seasons. But this wasn't a collection to add to the pile. This was a new version of a femme fatale that makes her own rules, like the designer. We saw a lot of unwashed denim as long coats, loose pencil skirts and even as two-pieces suits that seemed to be intended as evening wear. Then came the ultra short cropped tops paired with said skirts and worn under long jackets and coats made of, wait for it, fur! I really do love when people don't play by the rules and it was so fun and refreshing to see fur on the runway, it made me think of that time earlier this summer when Lady Gaga herself was sporting a fur coat un August.

The Miu Miu front row was full of some of my favourite ladies: Amanda Seyfried, who looked amazing in a red Prada resort look; Emma stone, in a Miu Miu black strapless dress and Chloë Sevigny, face of Miu Miu F/W12, wore a full look by the brand proving she knows how to mix her prints.
