Miu Miu FW24: Evolutionary Dressing From Girl to Woman

Miuccia Prada's latest collection expands our understanding of who the Miu Miu girl is, and the woman she is becoming.

The winds of change breezed through the Miu Miu FW24 show. Gone were the miniskirts and bathing suits of seasons past in favor of longer hemlines and more mature silhouettes. Bold colors of recent runways were replaced by browns and greys (though there was the odd neon ensemble).

Accessories included strings of pearls, brooches and bulky gloves, like those worn by falconers. Modeling these looks was an all-ages cast that included Kristin Scott Thomas (63) and Dr Qi Huilan (70), who walked to heavy music: a Baroque fugue, or an intense, super-loud drum beat. The final outfits were little black dresses, considered a staple of any woman’s wardrobe.

 

We know Miu Miu as the young, playful sister of the more cerebral Prada. But the message from this collection is that the Miu Miu girl is growing up. By showing the range of outfits from throughout her life, Miuccia Prada repositioned the brand in our collective consciousness, expanding our understanding of who this girl is and the woman she is becoming. (Or the man, for that matter; several male models walked the runway.)
