LIVE! Grazia Watches The Miu Miu Spring Summer 2012 Collection!

 

Wow. We've just finished watching the Spring Summer 2012 Miu Miu show (above) LIVE on the label's own website...Jealous? Well, if you missed it, you can watch it here, where the luxury label will be screening the show on a loop for anyone who didn't manage to nab a Front Row invitation for the Paris Fashion Week presentation.


The show took place in the Palais Diea in Paris, which is a somewhat bleak concrete space punctuated with wide bright scarlet pillars. The soundtrack to the show began with the unmistakable jagged strings of the Wicked Witch of the East's personal soundtrack from The Wizard of Oz. And then this look appeared...

 

See? Spooky. Great skater skirt though..

And the second outfit was equally fierce, in every way...

 

 

Genius cape. Expect too see low-slung capes over button-up shirts on a blogger near you, possibly later this afternoon.

Woah. Those are some seriously witchy shoes. In scarlet velvet: it's like Dorothy and the Wicked Witch of the West collaborating on a shoe collection

Introducing: The Almost-Wearable Cropped Top. Worn with a skirt so high-waisted that it's practically just a 'Peekaboo Empire Line' (we're trademarking that).

Mules, mules, mules... as seen at Louis Vuitton earlier today. Are these really going to be a thing now?

 

Loving this fashion formula: sundress + swingy bag = Summer 2012

Beautiful deep burgundy velvet cape, over dark grey lace...

Okay, we're still not over lace...

 

At all...

Prints getting getting busy: patchwork patterns.

...even for shoes... nobody does printed footwear like Miuccia Prada.. remember Spring Summer 2010's cat print clogs?

Let's talk about the bags... teeny tiny swingy, in jewel-toned velvet or Western patterned leather or satin bucket bags...

Not sure about this for Summer: Red eye make-up...

Miuccia's take on next season's inescapable Sixties sugary pastels...

 

And for the finale outfit? A patchwork coat...

 

Miuccia is wearing a patchwork coat too.... take a bow!
