Halloween comes in the form of Little Goth Girls at Miu Miu
(View actual size here)
I knew Miu Miu was the younger collection of the Prada brand. "But Not That Young!" was what I though this season when I saw the Miu Miu Spring Summer 2010 collection.
Of course the expert tailoring and quality Italian fabrics remain uncompromised at Miu Miu. But the look and feel of some pieces (Sharp pointy collars paired with cats and swallows) and messy braids in the sordid, Halloween-esque presentation just made me imagine a fairytale with frightened and confused little girls wandering in the deep dark depths of a scary forest. Their eyes are wide open like platters, ample lower lashes as they peer into your soul. Its as if their eyes are screaming into your mind "Help me!"
Don't get me wrong. I love the overall goth-doll collection, pretty jacquard lace-looking pants, erotic naked woman prints, cutouts around the bust area and the way it was presented. There were some pretty chandelier pieces all in virginal white and some pretty messed up pieces mostly with sequins, beads and the wrong combination of prints/ fabric.
Mind you, this collection with its "I'm never been so confused in this point of life" look is best worn on little girls. 20 & above-s have to try elsewhere.
