«It wasn’t meant to be a church, it was just the architect… It was the idea of sexiness, of women’s issues and Feminism,» said Miuccia Prada, while standing under the Miu Miu set made of wooden arches and pillars — what anyone in the audience would have seen as a church nave.
This familiar Prada perversity also set smartly tailored coats over pencil skirts but with frothy tops that left the midriff bare.
Just in case the line-up of Liv Tyler alongside young actresses, including Hailee Steinfeld, did not quite get the sex thing right, the Miu Miu girl was wearing seductive shoes with flapping bows.
Apart from a few variations, such as an elongated frilled top and narrow pants, the collection was repetitive — but quite compelling. Plaid made a strong appearance on skirts and belts, while a coat had vertical strips of hyper-fashionable suede down the front.
In other words, it was a typical Miu Miu offering, bags included, for clothes to love, or to lust over — if you must.
