Miu Miu Press Day

Miuccia Prada is evidently feeling bold for spring - not only for her mainline Prada collection (a riot of block-colour and poster-paint fox I witnessed up-close in the showroom in Milan) but also for her Miu Miu line, which I got to examine in detail at the label's press preview yesterday. This season patched and appliquéd leather was the order of the day in a collection that celebrated the crasser face of contemporary culture - apparently Mrs Prada was thinking of American Idol and X Factor contestants shouting for attention in garish get-ups. Those flame-patterned leathers were the order of the day, alongside acidic pleated silks splashed with sinuous prints, and some natty checkerboard dance shoes.

    After my absolute dream of a collection last season I was so disappointed by the fluoro! Although I did spot a little pale pink heart neckscarf at the back that i wish I could have snapped right up. Mmm Miu Miu.
