1940s style stiffly feminine matriarch outfits in old tweed, perforated floral sweaters, unflattering frilly square collar dresses that resemble what a modern day house cleaner or maid would be forced to wear. No amount of bubblegum pop colour can save this dated tablecloth collection.

By now, all the impressionable children of the fashion world would be waxing lyrical over the Miu Miu Fall Winter 2015 runway show pieces.

From short-handle handbags to lampshade short coats, the only saving grace from the collection was the use of colour as though Miuccia Prada herself was in a frenatic attempt to be more exciting and hopefully appeal to the young ones.

Miu Miu and fashion's fetish with teenage girls wearing old lady clothings is evident in the runway show where stark contrasts of powerful youth are overshadowed by 1950s Barbie hair toting women with the classic chunky accessories, long skirts and heavy coats.

If the power of imagery is strong enough to sell beauty products, so can it work for fashion. While hordes of undiscerning simple sheeples (sheep-like people who herd together quickly once they see the a group of people doing the same thing) marvel at Miu Miu's Fall Winter collection in awe, we at Unlikely You think otherwise.

Unable to think for their own, these sheeples often fall in the trap of following blindly.

Fashion houses who have ran out of ideas, plain lazy or perhaps simply showing the sign of poor economic times where lesser resources are pumped into investment for brand new ideas collectively exhibit the same symptoms - the inability to think of something fresh and new, simply sticking to the norm, revisiting the overused themes from the yesteryears and past decades of the 50s, 60s, 70s where times were much better than the present.

At Unlikely You, we refuse to give in to the easy, mindless temptation of mass generic brand hysteria - just following suit isn't enough to be truly hailed as one's fashionable self.
