Miu Miu brings us a throwback vibe in their 2020 Resort Collection.
The show kicked off at Hippodrome d’Auteuil, a race track specifically for steeplechase racing. Jockey inspired Miuccia Prada’s Off to the race collection included elements that could possibly have come from the forties and sixties. This influence was displayed through the outfits, more specifically on the collar, the balloon sleeves, and the cinched-in waist. As well as through vibrant colours and playful prints.
Miuccia Prada played on the quirky hats that are supposedly helmets, which are hats stacked on hats. Prada also had fun with colours, using colour blocks on garments and the stripes motif — which is common to see on jockey’s uniform.
Any print is uncommon to see on the outfit apart from the usually chequered print. However, there is a nice twist in using relevant characteristics within racing, making it more exciting and playful.
The catwalk began with steeple horse racing, and then the show began. Each of the outfits presented were just as unique as the other — even in the styling of the outfits, the creative was clear. The overall show was joyus, playful and quirky.
