The new Miu Miu fall 2013 collection has been displayed at Paris Fashion Week. With a rather sporty-chic vibe, the line featured slightly severe silhouettes. There were longer skirts and mid-calf coats, scarves and stripy stockings. Ah, and let’s not forget those tight hairstyles! Everything screamed femininity and a particular elegance and sophistication.
“I had no time to think about this collection,” Miuccia Prada said after the show. “I worked on instinct. I had kept the idea of taffeta back from Prada – we started with the fabrics here – it had reminded me of Isabelle Adjani in Subway. I wanted the collection to have the feel of something sport, industrial, contemporary, tough. And that polka-dot scarf was the start of Frenchness, frivolity; the starting from sport toward a more feminine feel,” the designer added.
There was a sailor-inspired aesthetic in the latest Miu Miu fall 2013 collection mixed with a playful, modern flare. One could spot sailor collars, stripes and navy blue as well as cheerful polka dots and pops of pink, orange, green, yellow, red, and blue.“After the last show, having worked so much for a month and a half [on Prada], I just wanted the visual,” Miuccia Prada explained. “Something sporty but it had to become frivolous and romantic at the end. The end is completely another story, but I didn’t have time to analyze it. It’s just instinct and what you see.”
Okay, so if you already took a peek at the new Miu Miu fall 2013 line from Paris Fashion Week, you already know that the line includes so many stylish outerwear goodies. There are high-waisted coats, parkas and incredibly chic long dress coats. Miuccia played around with colors and prints, mixing pastels and brights, but also flirty polka dots and stripes.
“If you are in sync and in the right time, try to sell; it means people like what you are doing,” said Prada. “If you want to be an artist, compete with artists. You are not completely free. I struggle for freedom, for understanding, to find the places in between.”
