From its inception in 1993 Miu Miu was a private territory of expression and a creative playground, fittingly christened with Miuccia Prada’s family nickname. At a time when Prada was at its most minimalist, Miu Miu offered a counterpoint: a sensual, rebellious take on dressing-up.
Early shows were staged in New York, London and Milan, but the world of Miu Miu crystalized when the label first showed in Paris in 2006. Embracing both couture savoir-faire and refined experimentalism, Miu Miu explores fashion as a rarefied form, giving elegance and sophistication a new and twisted meaning. Diverse inspirations, playing on masculine and feminine, historic references and a jilted modernity come together unexpectedly.
