If you're looking for a hidden meaning behind all the funky fur and glamorous jewels on the Autumn 2017 Miu Miu runway, there probably isn't any. That's how Miuccia Prada approaches her line "for the girl at heart." She gives the fashion crowd what it needs to play dress-up, depending on her mood. Miuccia set the tone with a hairy purple invite and a furry runway in the same colour, but as soon as the show began, we were introduced to the whole rainbow.
Models walked to tunes by '80s hip-hop band De La Soul, pairing their furry pink hats with matching furry moon boots and the new must-have kicks: a boot that stops just below the knee decorated with silver hardware, grommets, and strips of snakeskin. Street style star Anna Dello Russo might even try the fuzzy, elbow-length gloves — they're even more eye-catching than a foam hand at a baseball game.
Miuccia's bright coordinates printed with old-school telephones and bushy-tailed cats were no more quiet, but if they're too much for you, try an embroidered sweater with a quirky little sparkle patch. While there were plenty of crystal brooches on satin mules, the belts of coats, and clutches, Miu Miu diamonds are not so sophisticated — they're merely a wink to all the women who walk with a pep in their step.
Finally, Miuccia did not forget she's got a red carpet to dress. Sparkling pink midis swathed in paillettes or shifts with sprawling feather patches were perfect for Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, or Stranger Things breakout star Natalia Dyer. Us? We'll take the groovy fit-and-flares branded with the Miu Miu name. After a season where it became popular to wear your heart on your sleeve, and a runway show that put a smile on our face, we really couldn't ask for more.
