Miu Miu Spring Summer 2017

Swim caps on, beach towels at the ready! Miuccia Prada was apparently

Swim caps on, beach towels at the ready! Miuccia Prada was apparently in a playful summer mood when she put together the Miu Miu collection (though, sadly, her models weren’t smiling about it). At a time when there’s so much trouble and stress in the world, it’s sometimes a treat to take a break from thinking too much. Who, at this juncture, wouldn’t want to buy into the sunny retro-fantasy of Italy at its glamorous postwar peak?

That’s when Prada was a girl, of course. This is a period she knows so well—the optimistic culture of ’60s and early-’70s prints (schematic daisies; abstract art; and hand-smocked baby dresses for little children transformed into cropped blouses). ​

She also grew up with a mother and a grandmother who wore lovely ’40s-print dresses; on the runway were several extremely tempting examples of these, complete with back ties.

All of these looks were accompanied either by beach slides or wedge sandals, which, on close inspection, had shells and starfish embossed into them. Later, they were worn by delightfully sexy ’50s pinup girls in ruched bikinis. All this, of course, would be to overlook the multiple examples of ’60s fit-and-flare coats in this collection. It was a great deal of fun, gratefully received in this time of chaos.

Isabel Marant looks to the Far East for inspiration

Paris’ queen of cool Isabel Marant has her mind in the tribes once again. She doesn’t disappoint by dishing effortless chic albeit with an ethnic slant.

Turning her attention to the Middle East, dangerously low-slung harem pants were paired with tiny flared jackets with frayed ends,

all pulled together by lace-up embellishment that Marant just cannot get enough of made many an appearances on everything from full on jackets to cropped tops to waist accents. Perfect to add on to Marant’s earlier, cleaner pieces.

Max Mara stages a timely fashion rebellion


Italian purveyor of fine coats Max Mara is tossing sartorial rules to the wind and making them up as they go along.

This Spring, Max Mara turns traditions on its head with fun fashion. Anyone for way-too long sleeves and asymmetrical buttons that mimics buttoning up wrongly?

And if these kooky styling antics are not enough to get your groove on, how about head-to-toe star prints? Add nautical stripes and oversized duffle bags with rope handle ensure an authentic nautical experience.

HL: Back To The Future
SF: Chloe takes us back to a time when fashion was all fun and games

Clare Waight Keller at Chloe does atheleisure on her own terms.

“This season’s collection is a tribute to girls named Kate, Chloé, Cecilia, Corinne, Rosemary, Emma, and Courtney, who embody the liberty and the elegance of a perfectly mastered and excessively lived simplicity.”

Memories of the haughty ‘90s came flooding back with an updated spin.

Shiny track pants were worn with off-shoulder lace blouses, snug body suits were tucked into floaty maxi skirts,

racy bandeaux peeked out of overalls, the insouciance of the collection offered a joyful take on style that has nearly been forgotten. Pretty sporty right about sums it all up.
