Miu Miu SS16
The lowdown: Pretty, classy, but with a twist, Miu Miu’s SS16 girl means business. Donning dark purple lips and slicked-down hair, the looks were at once feminine and exquisitely haphazard (this is how a girl only dreams of looking if she were to raid her mother’s wardrobe). Sheer, puffy, frill dresses came worn over gingham shirts and pencil skirts while full-length tutus came worn under long, mannish coats. Coats made a big statement in this collection; oversized, masculine duster-style numbers appeared printed, motif-ed or adorned with fur scarves. Shoes were definitely a highlight; deliciously coloured platform shoes and boots were oh-so Miu Miu and for those of us who prefer a flat, ballet pumps are back and they’re being paired with mismatched ankle straps. Purple wove its way through a lot of the collection, while pops of red and azure blue clashed perfectly, rounding off a wonderfully refreshing collection.
