From the moment Ella Emhoff stepped out to Joe Biden’s dedication ceremony in a jewelry-encrusted Miu Miu coat, it was inevitable that the former fashion student and rising model would step onto Ms. P’s runway at some point. given. After all, Prada’s little sister has a long history of incubating the industry’s freshest future talent (just look at Lila Moss, Iris Law, and Bella Hadid). Unlike Lila however, this was not Emhoff’s first runway show, having previously walked for Proenza Schouler and Balenciaga – including this season’s âred carpetâ show. That being said, scoring a Miu Miu gig is a pretty monumental moment for any bright youngster.
Co-directed by Moroccan artist Meriem Bennani, Miu Miu’s SS22 show has been associated with office skits and fake audience members, who backed down, ogled, and taunted as Miuccia recovered (at least part of) of the brand’s menswear – through rugged beige pants, shrunken t-shirts and frayed trench coats. Just as Prada always found a flirtatious younger sister in Miu Miu, she also had a mischievous younger brother, before her menswear line closed in 2008. Over a decade later, formal definitions of menswear have become a little less rigid, with men and women donning identical old-fashioned pants and blue bank teller shirts. Elsewhere, models were sent in ultra-cropped sweaters, formal swim shorts, and beige acrylics, while the same bruised leather that had been crafted in boyish biker jackets at Prada had been pleated into girly skirts until. ‘knees and agile bombers.
Overall, the collection hacked into drab office outfits (or was it private Upper East Side school kids?) Dirty vintage minis and matching belts slung around the chest like a glamor model from the 2000s. But while this may have been the most carnal portrayal of sex, it wasn’t just mischief putting the body at risk. naked. Low librarian skirts and shapeless, sane chinos, practically swollen with desire from the matron hosiery that stuck out of the belts. It was Mrs. Prada, after all, who said that “the ugly is attractive, the ugly is exciting”. In fact, this season’s Miu Miu offering rang with plenty of hardcore prada-isms, overturning haughty upper-class codes by picking up and sending off their beloved uniform.
