Miuccia Prada enlisted the stars from runway and the movie screen to walk in her latest resort collection for Miu Miu, which was an eclectic mix of styles reflecting the ever-changing mood of a woman.
Alongside models like Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima, Kaia Gerber and Adwoa Aboah, we also spotted Chloë Sevigny, Kate Bosworth, Uma Thurman and Game of Thrones’s Gwendoline Christie strut out in satin floor length dresses under chunky cardigans, feather trim skirts and buttoned up polo tops, tiny leather shorts and baby pink heels and floor length racing stripe coat unzipped to reveal maxi leopard print dress with a green satin top.
Set in the The Regina Hotel in Paris, the collection had a sense of freedom and fun. Not constrained by what you should wear for certain occasions, it instead encouraged to mix the sheer dresses with sporty bandeau tops or stripe athletic knits under duchess satin gowns.
The saddle bags went from mini to maxi, while luggage felt retro reminding us of the time when you had to carry them through check in rather than wheel them to the desk. The shoes were slipper-like and fluffy with a few quirky heeled options and sneakers thrown in the bundle – very Miu Miu.
While you turn to Prada for the grown-up edgy feel, you can rely on Miu Miu to inject some joy and playfulness into your wardrobe, and for Resort 2019 it really feels like Miuccia Prada let go. That mood translated into the energy on the runway and particularly embraced by Thurman who smiled at guests as she sashayed down the catwalk and did a series of dramatic twirls to showcase the full mastery of the pieces.
