When Miu Miu’s AW15 collection rocked down the runway during Paris Fashion Week yesterday, we officially fell in love. Nailing their print clash mastery as always, Miu Miu sent a sensory overload (and we mean that in good way) of snakeskin, leopard print and dogtooth down the catwalk. Think 50’s chic meets plastic python and you’re somewhere close. Get the fabulous look for yourself with our guide…
1. Frill Shirts
Prints and textures collided on the Miu Miu catwalk with shirts acquiring a three-dimentional frill. Somewhere between 80’s power shoulders and new romantic ruffles, this is one of our favourite trends to emerge from Miuccia Prada’s postmodern offering. Shop the look yourself with Topshop’s 3D frill dress layered over a candy pink leopard print shirt for the ultimate texture/print clash.
2. Bling Daisy Jewellery
Miu Miu’s bling bloom jewellery meant models were anything but wallflowers. Adding an element of OTT, earrings and necklaces included oversized crystal flowers for an eccentric but ladylike finish to the colour clash looks. The perfect addition to any outfit, Dorothy Perkin’s daisy necklace and New Look’s statement earrings take a simple look to showstopping levels.
3. Blue Leopard Print
Stop the press! The new leopard print is here and it’s blue. Yup, Miu Miu’s indigo take on our fave print adorned everything from dresses to coats continuing the animal magnetism that ruled the whole collection. Nod to the feline trend with Mango’s leopard print denim skirt. Wear with a loose white tee and oversized earrings Miu Miu style for an effortless take on the look.
4. Citrus Dogtooth
When they weren’t rocking plastic python and mock croc, models donned some major dogtooth. Reincarnated in zingy citrus shades of orange and yellow, the usually serious print got a youthful update for AW15. Get the look with Hobb’s tangerine dream dogtooth skirt – an easy way to add a pop of colour to any workwear outfit. Just add a white shirt and Miu Miu esque pointed flats for a look that’s office ready and bang on trend.
