When Miuccia Prada invited to the #MiuMiuJockeyClub at the picturesque Hippodrome d’Auteuil, it was very evident that we would not only be treated to the latest Miu Miu Resort collection but also to a fun night of horse racing, passionate betting and old-school glamour. Besides the practicability of the location, Miuccia Prada choice of location meant to play with conservatism and traditions in a fun and swanky way.
Work wear elements such as strong and puffy shoulders cuts, baseball caps and pleat-front trousers perfectly contrasted with the feminine platforms and bobby socks as well as the printed and collared tea dresses. Prada played with roughly pushed-up sleeves and long skirts to create a masculine yet feminine style which picks up retro elements. She also did so by layering hats as baseball caps and floppy sun hats as well as by combining crochet lace and horse prints with fitted, belted pants.
Fun and sporty yet conservative and retro – Miuccia Prada once again managed to surprise her fans as well as her critics with a completely reinvented Miu Miu collection which might include more political criticism than it reveals at first sight.
