miu miu bags fashion week

If you follow fashion blogs, than you’ve already seen Miu Miu’s line of 46 bags which launched in tandem with New York fashion week. Commemorating the Fall/Winter 2012 shows in New York, Paris, London and Milan, the bags have been/will be on display in each respective city during its time in the spotlight. If you're interested (and I know you are!), click here to see the line in its entirety. Isn't it lovely? Miuccia Prada is a genius, I tell you! 


chez schiaparelli

WWD announced in late August that the Costume Institute’s next exhibit is to focus on the work of Italian designers Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada. If the Institute’s recent "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" show is any indication, this exhibit is sure to be one for the books! Ms. Schiaparelli is a favorite fashion icon of mine... In addition to devouring any and all books written by/about the woman, I’ve clocked in an embarrassing number of hours googling her. These photos taken by Life of her Paris maison are my most recent find - I only wish that they were in color! Even so, the shots are incredible + so full of detail (notice her little dog in the bottom left corner of image #2?). Oh, Elsa, you were truly one-of-a-kind :) 


miu miu + hailee steinfeld

A few weeks ago, Miu Miu (a favorite fashion house of mine) rolled out their Autumn ’11 ad campaign. The ads, shot by Bruce Weber, feature 14-year-old fashion darling Hailee Steinfeld - isn’t she a doll? I find it interesting that Miu Miu chose such a young starlet to be the face of the collection, but it works... perhaps because Miuccia Prada’s whimsical designs are near-ageless. I’d practically give my left arm for a pair of those sparkly shoes or that blush-colored floral dress. Can't wait 'til these ads appear in the glossies so I can tack them to my inspiration board :)
