Miu Miu Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2013 Paris

To the sensual sounds of Neneh Cherry singing a very erotic version of the Cole Porter classic “ I’ve Got You Under My Skin” Miuccia Prada made ‘femme fatales’ out of her Miu Miu girls.
 
The designer set the stage for this sexy collection by blocking out the sun. At exactly thirty minutes past the official start time of the show, giant curtains were closed to block the light out of the Palais d'Iéna show venue. Then a lonesome horn started to wail as the first model took to the Rem Koolhaas' OMA designed multileveled catwalk, forcing her to climb and descend a myriad of stairs in high-heeled pumps.
 
But surprise, surprise, the outfit she was wearing came cut from dark denim, an odd choice for Prada. But she made it look sexy and contemporary, counter balancing the slightly 1950s feel of the show. Throughout this collection there was this sense of mixing high and low. Lots of splotchy fur coats and stoles came paired with skirt suits and dresses crafted from wrinkled satin- as if the model had just returned to work after a lunchtime tryst. Retro looking bra tops with matching pencil skirts appeared thrown on, as if the woman wearing it had other things on her mind and wanted to don something effortless and easy. Then there were the printed dresses that looked like they had been shot by oversized paintball pellets- splattered as if the wearer had been caught out on her dalliances.
 
The collection was both nonchalance and sexual. But because most of the clothing was crafted in forgiving shapes- wide cut jackets, long dresses, cocooning furs- the sexual overtones were tampered down just enough to give this show the feeling of effortless eroticism.
