The countercultural, '50s-inspired girls of last season have now moved on to the '60s, and are wearing sheer lingerie slips, sleeveless wool shifts, short capes with front pockets and double-breasted boiled-wool minicoats. Like their more mature cousins at Prada, Miu Miu enthusiasts love blackbut they can also add plenty of color to their mod look with flower-printed robes and little Empire-waisted dresses in bright green and red. Sharp denim jackets, pleated skirts and straight jeans work perfectly with crinkly cotton shirts as a hip city uniform.
Miu Miu's accessories always tie the looks together. In this case, black stockings, cracked-leather Mary Janes and low-slung tan bags all looked polished yet slightly wornas if a fashion-savvy gamine had rifled through her mother's closet, borrowing all the right stuff.
