A little Miu Miu & Long Island Iced Tea for Two.
by The Window Shopper
Miu Miu’s 2012 RST collection, pictured above at the 57th street shop, is a little bit punchy, a lot a bit girly, and a whole bag of fun. With all of the bows, crystals, headbands, and lace, it’s as if Ms. Muiccia designed her sickkk collection after having tea in Wonderland with Lady Alice herself. And the collection, much like Alice in Wonderland, is a contradiction in itself, riddling the senses and screaming at artistic convention. It is raw yet refined, loud yet muted, youthful yet vintage; it is Betsey Johnson meets Lagerfeld, and oh what a chic paradox it is.
I just can’t figure out whether the Miu Miu 2012 resort girl is hitting punky dive bars on the LES or whether she is a modern “lady who lunches,” breaking tradition and venturing out of the UES from time to time. It is hard to tell really and I guess I will just have to make peace with the fact that she is both uptown and downtown, she is Heart & Lykke Li, Lit Lounge & The Madison Room. I mean in the end, its all Wonderland, right?
Here are some previews of the collection:
