The look The straight-laced Miu Miu woman with a sinister secret.
Key pieces This was mainly a collection of dresses, with reworked coloured lace and satin standing out as the most important fabrics. Satin skirts were gathered at the waist and looked most modern when worn with crisp white round-neck shirt/blouse hybrid tops. Patchwork was used on A-line dresses and skirts and overcoats, while stoles featured velvet ties.
Colours A dark palette of burgundy, mustard, slate grey and black.
Commercial appeal The reworked lace looked a little bit dated but the overcoats with ties were striking and will surely prove to be coveted pieces for spring 12. Shirts with fabric crossovers will be popular with Miu Miu’s more directional customer.
