Fashion powerhouse Miu Miu has just released their 2018 resort collection. Firstly a brief history of the Miu Miu brand.The brand was launched in 1992 by Miuccia Prada. She took this opportunity to explore new territory and to contrast the minimalist style at Prada with more extreme and playful looks at Miu Miu.
Miu Miu is known for possessing a fashion-forward, sensual and provocative style.The attention to detail and quality is impeccable. Targeting fashion-conscious women who are driven by a modern spirit of exploration and experimentation of fashion choices.The independent identity of the Miu Miu brand is enhanced because of it’s ties to Prada. It being the daughter brand and part of the Prada group.
So take your front row seats at Miu Miu’s Resort 2018 catwalk. From the venue to the highlights-consider this your guide to Couture Fashion week’s kick-off show!
It is easy to see where Miucciu Prada has drawn her inspiration from. All the pieces were bright, bold and unapologetic.A constant trend for Miu Miu is explosions of colour.The star of Mrs Prada’s recent line-up was the one-piece, with the collection made up of mainly loose jumpsuits or tight rompers.There was a plethora of different prints and textures that spanned throughout the entire collection.Printed pieces akin to racing suits and bright tropical prints. As well as solid pieces with a more utilitarian style, think street style couture.
The must have accessories for the show were visor hats. These super-cool hats patched with the words “Miu Miu” and 3D detailed sandals were rocked by some models.
In conclusion, this collection is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

The Paris Automobile Club in Hôtel de Crillon was chosen as the location . This definitely would not seem like a place to house a haute couture fashion show. Despite that the venue choice perfectly corresponded with the theme of the collection.The automobile club echoed the race-suit vibes but had a stunning contrast with other pieces.
Additionally the elite institution, which typically admits only male members, got a provocatively feminine face-lift as part of its transformation into the Miu Miu Club.
