On Tuesday, Miuccia Prada presented the Miu Miu spring 2023 ready-to-wear collection to a packed audience during Paris Fashion Week. Read on for five takeaways from the label’s most recent show.
New Miu Miu Sets Have Been Unlocked
Few looks had an impact like the Miu Miu micro miniskirt set unveiled last season. Now, the little sister of Prada has given us a bunch of new co-ords (read: It girl uniforms) to obsess over. We can see the black buckle bralette and pocketed miniskirt set taking over closets and Instagram feeds in the months to come.
FKA Twigs Closed the Show
Closing out Miuccia Prada’s spring 2023 show, after the usual model line-up featuring Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid, was FKA Twigs, who emerged on the runway wearing a navy cableknit sweater paired with a white shirt and a black multi-pocket miniskirt.
Miuccia Prada Teamed Up With Artist Shuang Li
The Italian designer is committed to championing women creatives. Following a successful collaboration with Meriem Bennani for spring 2022, Prada teamed up with Chinese artist Shuang Li on a nature-focused video installation that played during the show on Tuesday. “Always I want to expand Miu Miu, to open up, through our casting, through collaboration with artists. That is another translation, the notion of translating different ideas into the world of fashion, of engaging with different creative spheres, enriching each other. It mirrors the exchanges and communications of life,” said the designer.
Miu Miu Said “Gender Fluidity!”
There was plenty of genderless looks seen on male models on the runway. Denim suits, crisp slacks, and leather zip-ups were made to be worn equally by the Miu Miu woman and man. Prada even sent out one male model wearing a black skirt paired with heeled boots.
A Blast From the Past
The designer seemed to take inspiration from Miu Miu’s iconic spring 1999 collection, with the buckles and muted color palette. Prada also seemed to reference the men’s spring 2003 collection, where the attached pockets first made an appearance.
