Besotted with Miu Miu

February 25th, 2010

So I know it’s fashion month and the AW10 collections are upon us, but all I’m thinking about is the Miu Miu cat prints for spring/summer. Last weekend I tried on the swallow print shoes and I’ve got it bad. The shape is perfect, lovely thick heel, super high, lovely! I’m dying for the cat printed ones above though, which are apparently dropping in stores soon. I love this whole collection, it was my absolute fave this season. I saw a lot of the samples on shoots and they are so beautifully made! Some samples come in and they’re falling apart and shedding sequins all over the place, but the Miu Miu jewelled pieces were always perfect. I mean really, crystals, cat/dog/bird prints, matching trouser suits, mermaid sequins, crazy long hair plaits? How would I not love this! Can’t wait to see what Miuccia has planned for Prada and Miu Miu next.

    I MUST HAVE that cat-print fabric. I don’t care if that makes me sound like a bonkers cat lady. It is just fantastically witty.
