Miu Miu Fall Winter 2013 : Miuccia's Basic Instinct

             Leave it to Miuccia Prada to close Paris Fashion week on a high, fun and flirty note. The show opened with a series of navy sailor-back coats and suits lined with astrakhan. Then followed parkas (even a strapless version) over calf length skirts and long, zipped ensembles in polka dots and stripes in pink, yellow, teal, red and black. The silhouette was hourglass or streamlined and cinched at the waist. All the looks came with stripy stockings and fifties style shoes with metallic shades with chunky rubber soles.
    The label I like to think of as Prada's younger sister (and much like one) seems to have –in most cases–  a less cerebral approach towards clothes. In fact, Miuccia herself confessed that she had no time to make this collection and that she had based it on instinct. Apparently her instincts have guided her well into a very feminine, sporty and contemporary take on dressing this season.
           One thing is for sure, weather she approaches clothes right from the gut or from a very planned and orderly manner she always manages to make others follow her lead.
