Miu Miu Spring 2013 RTW

The Miu Miu Spring 2013 collection is a quant…ahem I mean quaint foray back to the swinging sixties London when Beatlemania made Bieber-Fever look like child’s play. A time when Jean Shrimpton and Coleen Corby covered the pages of magazines, tea was taken with honey but beehives were for hairdos, eyeliner had wings and “Mod” was the word on the streets. 

The collection was sixties-secretary meets Amy Whinehouse meets society dame. School girl Cat-eye frames, beehive hairdos, ladylike frame satchels fur stoles, long gloves and sixties-secretary capes, shiny brushed denim,structured sheaths, satin bralettes, boxy overcoats and plasticky PVC pencil skirts and polished dusters.
