Be Stole My Heart!
by The Window Shopper
Miu Miu’s spring summer collection stole my heart away- especially with their over incorporation of one of my favorite vintage’spirations: the stole! (Stovercoat pictured above.)
The not quite a cape not yet a shawl is total 20′s glam and I’m so glad to see it back in action. Traditionally made of fur, and reserved for underground speakeasies, brandy and jazz- Miuccia Prada using silk, brocade and velvet gave the garment a Joan Rivers face lift, taking nearly fifty years from its aged silhouette. Way thinner than stoles of fashionistas past and a whole lot more wearable, the nouveau shoulder hugging wardrobe topper is no less luxe in its reincarnation. Shown on the runway over blouses, bustiers and high waisted full bodied skirts the Miu Miu stole has few styling limitations and is bound to make any look chic. Tailored suits, boat necks, high waisted shorts, one shoulder dresses, skinny jeans and and silk blouses– you’ll begin to wonder how you ever wore them without one!
