FW 2013 Miu Miu show space description

The miu miu AW 13/14 Show was held  in 
 August Perret’s Palais d’Iena. 
The catwalk is designed as a deep compressed space, 
extending across the salle hypostyle of the Conseil Economique, 
Social et Environnemental. 
The audience are seated along a conventional catwalk
The installation isolates the middle section of the salle: 
an intermediate layer between 
the suspended ceiling and the raised floor. 
Materials are industrial: floor and ceiling are clad
 with a black metal grate, covering a dense 
sequence of fluorescent tubes above and below. 
The intense light dematerializes the metal surfaces, 
producing the illusion that the fashion event 
and its audience are floating in space.

 Miuccia Prada has created  A  Modern Punk Mary Poppins for miu miu 
next Winter with what
Vogue described as a mix of utility and folklore
which if you think about it is very much the character
of Julie Andrews in the Classic Film.
There are big buttoned overcoats or zipped parkas tightly belted 
over long striped or polka dot skirts. 
There are skinny straight pencil skirts
and shift dresses with scoop necks and thin straps,
and beautiful fur coats.
 The palette is pink, pale blue - and yellow and red navy and black.

worn with
witchy striped tights in 
and buttoned zip ankle boots, dm style boots
 and high heeled platform mary janes.
There are large bags with god knows what in 
- definitely that Rum Punch Flavoured Medicine
that makes everything feel better,
and small striped bags which clash marvellously with the polka dot coats.
These are powerful witches, as every good woman should be.

make up was natural skin and eyes with perfectly drawn in brows
and dark mulberry lips 

hair was sleekly gelled into plaited buns either side 


Miuccia Prada
spotted kerchiefs worn knotted at the neck
and utility belts cinch in the buttoned and zip coats.

tights are in fine stripes in red/white,
blue/white, white/black,
white/grey, black/yellow,
red/black, pink/grey and yellow/grey

mary janes 
in black with silver and gold trim
pale blue and primrose suede with silver and gold trim

 buttoned zip ankle boots: 
in pale blue suede with gold or silver leather and black buttons,
black patent leather with bright blue leather,
black/red, black/grey, black/pink,
plus DM style boots

Huge knapsack bags
and Mary Poppins type doctor bags

and the most beautiful striped bags
especially to be worn with the polka dot coats
for a riot of mix of colour and pattern

Until next time J Xx
