Miu Miu presented its Spring/Summer 2022 collection designed by Miuccia Prada on Tuesday, October 5th 2021.
The collection; “Basic Instincts,” took us right back to our teenage years with new interpretations of the ‘belt’ low-rise mini skirt and school girl look, as worn by the likes of Britney Spears and Paris Hilton in the noughties!
The foundations of the collection came down to classic pieces: trousers, shirts, blazers, suits and sheath dresses, which have been given new proportions combining old and new. Edges are left raw and elements of the construction exposes as if open to the elements. For evening, elegant (more modest) feminine looks were embellished with elegant sparkling details and embroidered detail.
Accessories came in the form of pointed Mary-Janes worn with calf-length socks of school-girl inspired pumps and sneakers. Bags were held firmly in the fist or oversized accessories worn on shoulders.
The Show Space for the show was decorated with artworks by artist Meriem Bennani whose body of work explores intimate relationships mediated through the camera. Here, that idea is echoed and overlapped with another interrelation, of women and fashion. Conceived alongside the collection, Bennani commands control of the Miu Miu live stream via a series of filmic artistic interventions starring her own mother. These fantasy sequences are mixed real-time into the broadcast of the show to blur lines between virtual and real.
