Miu Miu, Oh My Oh My!

Do I NEED this pair of sunglasses like I need a second kidney? Probably not. Do I WANT this suuuper sexy pair of red glitter cat-eyes with the svelte gold wire temples? OH, HELLZ YEAH.

My oh my for the Miu Miu, if you will. Me wants them muy muy much. In fact the entire fall collection of Mui Mui fills me with want, I'm not sure how Madame Miuccia Prada does it, but her cerebral application of fashion concepts to entirely wearable + desirable clothing (and accessories) year after year, is something I greatly admire + am inspired by. Prada proves that you can love fashion, be successful and be as clever as punch. 


Referencing the Peacock Revolution of the '60's and spinning into the Dee-lightfull arms of Lady Kier, the starting point is menswear but the collection quickly veers into glossed up glam revision of Courreges as danced through the filter of the 1990's. It's androgyne meets ingenue meets a pair of flinty Fluevogs

You can love fashion, be successful + be as clever as punch.
Am I a Dedicated Follower of Fashion? I'm not sure I could pull off the entire look (or afford it!) but I can add elements of this pop candy glamor to my existing wardrobe. I love the layers, the bold prints, saturated colors and all the shine and sparkle found in the collection. While I flirt with the newborn desire for a pair of John Fluevogs (sparked by Fluevog devotees Sheila and Melanie) I've most definitely set my sights on a much coveted pair of red and glittery shades, which I tell myself is not only a fashion accessory, but an implement of practicality (Gotta shade my eyes this Fall from Seattle gloom and doom!)

My wish list of Mui Mui frames for Fall 2012:

Wonderful. Every single pair. I love large-as-life frames with a bit of glam. I bet they have that for sure. Will check this out further.

Oh my goodness. I'm dying right now! Those are unlike anything else. I love the shape, and THE color! Wow! So major.

Those red glitter sunglasses are fabulous! What is it about Seattle and sunglasses. It was always said that Seattlites lost more sunglasses per year than any other city. (And, of course, more than umbrellas, since real Seattlites don't use umbrellas.) I think you should get the shoes first, and then get the sunglasses in a few months as an antidote to the December weather. You're lucky to have a Fluevog shop right downtown.

Bella my dear, can't we throw you a rent party for the Miu Miu sunglasses? I would contribute! C'mon you NEED them! XO, Jill

If there is one thing that the Prada / Miu Miu world does really really well is their glasses frames. And a bunch of other things as well, but most affordably, glasses frames. I was just lusting after a pair of quasi-cat eye horn rimmed ones from them as well. But those in your post...Those are SO YOU. Are you going to go for it?

Anne @ The Frump Factor said...

The red sunglasses would be PERFECT on you. Make it so!

Une Femme said...

Oh, those red ones have your name all over them! I'm kind of partial to the very last pair you've shown here. There's nothing as glam as a pair of big look-at-me-I'm-an-incognito-movie-star sunglasses!

SACRAMENTO said...

The Miu Miu glasses that are you, are also so me, ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Shybiker said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous. It's amazing how transformative a pair of glasses can be.

I can see you looking fab in all of these!! You're infecting me with Miu Miu lust, but I can admire from afar, too. The CDC has warned me about this virus, which can take a toll on my bank account, since I'm easily infected.

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

Love them, but I have such a big head so I need to wear reallt big shades.
