Miu Miu gets wrapped up and slick for next summer at Paris Fashion Week show

  • Print

PARIS - Miu Miu's spring-summer 2013 show in Paris had a wintery vibe.

Despite the slightly off-kilter season it was a slick display, with lashings of faux fur on coats and stoles with dyed patterning at the brand often seen as Miuccia Prada's baby sister offshoot.

It picked up nicely on this season's fascination with prints as contrasting explosions on loose skirt suits — sometimes resembling the negative of a photograph.

As ever, it remained demure, but interesting back features graced a few reversed boxy tops. Alongside looks in denim and the prints, it gave the clothes a distinctly cool edge which reached its peak in a few eclectic, asymmetrical pieces.

Only a master like Prada can make a tiny strapped cropped camisole work underneath a thick fur coat, accessorized with leather gloves and jeweled Roman sandals.

Uber-cool actress — and Miu Miu spokesperson — Chloe Sevigny watched from the front row.
