Miu Miu Spring Collection: Off The Deep End With Arty Crap Collection

Categories:Other Brands

So, early this week I wrote a piece about how much I`m loving Prada right now, so I thought it would be fitting to look at kid-sister line, Miu Miu, and see what they`ve been up to. Given the fab output from Prada this year, I reasoned that Miu Miu must have some good stuff going on too. Sadly, Miu Miu`s Spring collection is a huge disappointment – especially coming on the heels of such an excellent Prada collection.

Miu Miu Spring: Gaudy and Over-the-Top

The thing that I love about Prada`s Spring line is that it`s vibrant and fun without taking it too far. Great colours in classic styles with a dash of playful adornment – that`s all you need to make exciting bags. Miu Miu`s Spring 2011 line, in contrast, just looks like they`re trying too hard to make something new and unique. And, they`ve followed the current trend of using intensely bright colours, so we get set of overly elaborate, flashy, tasteless bags. The dress and bag above are just gross. Here`s a close up of that bag:

Why would anyone ever make a bag that colour? It hurts my eyes, it`s so bad!

What you can`t really see that well in the above pic are the strange cut-out straps and leather appliqués that are common in these bags (that neon-green bag has a cut-out strap, it`s just a bit blurry in that image). Here`s a better example:

Now, I can admit that it`s a nice idea. I think cut-out designs can be quite beautiful. But, this is just way to ornate for an everyday bag. And what`s with the chrome gloss, pink, and gold? It looks like they`re trying to pack in as many unsettling colours as they possible can. Hey Miuccia, it`s not cutting edge or avant garde to crowd your bags with gaudy colours – it`s just silly.

Ok. So, I`m not super fond of this collection, but I can admit that it`s not all bad. There are a few really nice pieces in here amongst all the clutter. I find that the collection works best when they simplify their tour-de-force, especially in the colour department, and when those appliqués are actually attractive. Here`s an example of a great outfit:

That dress with vibrant red, black and white – it`s really cool. And, the jacket is super cool, and strangely sexy. The only problem is, I don`t think I could actually wear it. In fact, I can`t even imagine anyone I know wearing this outfit. It`s still a little bit too out-there to be worn by most ladies, even if it looks great on the runway.

Here`s a bag I quite like:

So, in theory that appliqué should be just as hideous the rest of the collection, right? I mean, gold glitter and peach? Can that possibly work? I think that it does. You know why? Because it`s placed on a simple, white bag. This simple canvas gives the beautiful phoenix-esque flame design room to breath – it`s not competing with neon green or crimson red. This bag proves that Miuccia Prada still has a great eye for design, she just misses the mark sometimes when she aims for bags that are too arty.

Prada Spring: Prada`s Back Baby!

Categories:Other Brands

In my article Bringing The Fun Back Into Fashion I talked about home much I love the Prada Spring Collection, but for some reason I didn`t dedicate a whole piece to it. I feel like I`ve been talking to everyone I see about how much I`m loving Prada right now. Ever since New York Fashion Week I`ve been raving about their vibrant designs. And while it`s true that bright colors are the mode du jour for all designer handbags in the Spring collection, it is this gals humble opinion that Prada is doing it best. After a few years of subpar designs, I`m happy to say that Prada is back, baby!

The Best of the Spring Collection

A lot of people were more critical of this collection than I, so I`ll just mention a couple of the criticisms laid at this collection before I talk about why I love it. First, there have been claims that the bags are the worst part of Prada`s Spring collection. This is ridiculous. Prada has designed unbelievable shoes and prêt-a-porter for this Spring, so the fact that these bags don`t jump out at you immediately shouldn`t be a surprise. These bags are a part of an overall aesthetic that everything fits into – they`re part of a look, of great outfits, of a way of being. And, they look great in this context.

Secondly, there has been a critique that these bags are canvas when they should be leather. I have two retorts to this. First, I love canvas bags. I think it`s a great material and I make sure to maintain a balance between canvas and leather in my purse collection. Second, we all know that these bags will be translated into leather for retail. This happens every year! The aesthetic is outlined in the Fall fashion week season and this aesthetic is translated to a number of different materials and styles for retail in the spring.

I love these bags because:
1. They are simple, straight-forward, and elegant at once
2. Rather than relying on frills or gimmicks, they use simple, bold colours and classy designs
3. They are instantly recognizable
4. They perfectly blend classic designs with irreverent fun

So, now that the talking is out of the way, let`s look at the bags!

Up above you can see four examples of bags from the collection. I really like them all (though I don`t think they`re my favorites in the collection per se, just a great cross section and they`re great examples of a bunch of the things going on in this collection. You can see the bold colours, the stripes, and the cute handles and details.

This is one of my favs. I love the solid blue – and look at how well it matches the shoes! Love it!

And, this simple little bag. I love the contrast of the green top flap with black main bag. And, is this not textured leather? Some bloggers (who shall remain nameless) seem to claiming that there`s no leather in this collection!

Lastly, if you checked out the title image for this post you would have seen the lovely striped clutches with vibrant colours (against black) that are really making themselves seen. Check out how beautiful they look in contrast to the white dresses with elaborate prints. SOOOOOOOOO nice!

Prada Resort Bags

And, I couldn`t talk Prada without quickly mentioning these Prada resort handbags with exotically accented linen and straw. These are super elegant, sophisticated bags with a lightness that will be just perfect come summer. Have you seen any bags that look like these? Prada, you are on fire!

“I bought the bag from fabaaa and was quite skeptical at first. I looked at the bag on the mulberry site to make sure they were similar and it was to the latter. I even went into the mulberry store haha . Dealing with fabaaa was easy and straightfoward. I paid by paypal and every email was answered within a day. I received the bag in exactly 6 days which is quick for the uk. The bag itself is gorgeousssssssss the leather is soooo soft smells absolutely divine. Took the bag to a barbeque last weekend and no one could tell it was a replica including a friend who is really good with her designers. All in all I would definitely buy from fabaaa again .this was definitely a worthwhile experience”

First off, their Speedy/Keep All collection has expanded which I appreciate, because you can never have too many Speedys. They have also added new Mehina bags (good for this years perforated trend). Also of note more Vernis, Romance, and the most exciting of all is the spring 2010 additions. I’m most excited about the replica Louis Vuitton Denim Sunrise, and the new Cossmic Blossom collection which are some of my absolute favourites from the spring collection.
