While Prada is designed for adult-only sexual sophisticates this season, Miu Miu is for the naughty little sister who has a saucy act all her own. This is a girl out to prove she can look provocative even in a beige raincoat, when it's cut short and worn with head-turning hotpants and a cute sou'wester.
So what if she didn't actually live through early '70s? This expert young flirt makes free with quirky versions of fashions her mother knew so well. Styles like stiff culottes, doubleknit halter rompsuits, corduroy coats, chiffon blouses, and patch pockets applied in contrasting colors. All that cranberry, violet, brown, yellow and green. She adores the mumsy no-no of shiny quilting when it's made up into a pair of nutty emerald green overalls or a nipped-in navy trench. And those cute little jackets that tie in the back to emphasize her trim curves are irresistible. But then, why should she exercise restraint? After all, life's a blast when you're in charge of a fab body and a pair of great legs.
