Paris Fashion Week: Sexuality lurks beneath the surface at Miuccia Prada's Miu Miu collection

October 8, 2009 | 10:23 am
Miu-miu There was a sly sexuality to Miuccia Prada's Miu Miu collection, shown in Paris on Wednesday to a packed house that included actress Renee Zellweger.

Like little Lolitas with long braids in their hair, Prada's models stalked around the runway in cropped jackets and slim-fitting pants in white-on-black panther or reclining nude prints. Meow!

The covetable, girlish prints showed up on clutch purses and chunky platform shoes with ankle straps, too -- should be money in the bank.

Dresses with white schoolgirl collars and pleated skirts were short and sweet, with decolletage-enhancing details such as satin bustiers and crystals arranged in designs that suggested chandeliers, hearkening back to the terrific spring Prada collection shown in Milan two weeks ago. Double score for Miuccia.
