>> I’m showing my newly augmented age (it was my birthday yesterday) with this reference but here goes. It might seem a tad tenuous to link up Miu Miu’s current cruise collection that is in stores with bygone British children’s TV game show Fun House but… exaggerated stripes? Lashings of red and yellow? Those oversized earrings that the cheerleading twins wore, that look like they might catch on to the various obstacles? AND the fact that the collection is a WHOLE lotta of fun?
I’m not going to pretend that it was solely a defunct children’s game show made me walk into Miu Miu on Saturday to birthday gift myself. The show’s remixed mish mash ricocheting from 80s Blitz Kids to largin’ it up at the Ben Kelly-designed Haçienda, had me hooked, as soon as the first pair of Miu Miu-branded kitten heeled cowboy boots stomped out onto the scaffolding raised runway. How do you twist those innocent looking birds that originally featured in a supremely girly S/S 10 collection? Paste them onto the back of a chevron striped jacket with an ambiguous image of a girl’s pins on a bar stool and have them flying across a boxy white shift, edged with rivets and fabric scraps like Boy George’s hair in the eighties.
And the Miu Miu hits fortunately/unfortunately keep on coming. S/S 16’s disaffected Harajuku teens segued with camp-attack glam rock are just around the corner. Can one treat oneself on account of it being a New Year… ?
