Miu Miu's Spring '10 collection = so gawdy/so glamorous/so rad!! The sweet, contrasting prints and bedazzly-do-dads make for a beautiful marriage, and I'm in awe. I have nothing but respect for the Miu Miu design team for making such a cohesive, completely original collection.
I've noticed the striking impact that hairstyles have made on unifying specific collections and giving each a special signature look. Marc Jacobs reinvented the afro in the Louis Vuitton Spring '10 runway show by dotting each mass of hair with little bows and setting the stage into a color frenzy. Diane von Furstenburg on the other hand lit up her Resort '10 runway show with Minnie Mouse-meets-Lolita bows (DvF: discussed in earlier post). And Miu Miu invented a signature hairdo too: long, Rapunzel-like braids! It's official: Miuccia Prada has signed her Spring RTW '10! "Signed, sealed, delivered, Miuccia, I'm yours!" Moral of the story? Apparently a distinct runway hairstyle is the John Hancock for 21st century fashion labels.
