Insta-Critic: Miu Miu Marries Grandma Style and Exotic Skins

There will be no secrets here: Miu Miu is a brand I feel passionately about. The first pair of designer heels I ever splurged on were one of Miuccia’s creations. No one keeps whimsy elegant like Miuccia, and (forget the famous Chanel apartment), I frequently think that her world would be the fashion universe I’d most like to live in. Today’s show was simply a case-in-point. On the Miu Miu runway a fabric as old and traditional as tweed is revitalized instantly by the addition of patches of python. Big collars and Little House on the Prairie fabrics became super-mod when layered under mini shift dresses made entirely of exotic skins. Playful daisy costume jewelry finished off many a look, but trust–ultimately, it will be the cheeky shoes (wonky patents in retro hues with blocky heels) that have many editors cleaning out their closets.

I have a thing for ruffled cotton blouses! @miumiu #pfw #fall15

Not your average Grandma…(see Daisy accessories, Little House patterns and ruffles, and exotics-infused tweed).

It’s a snakeskin mini dress, yes it is!

The @miumiu shoes oh my… Make room in your shoe closet for the Fall #becausefw
