Top 5 for Spring - # 3

Miu Miu! Ignore the fact that the ad campaign for this season is surely a regrettable one. The show was truly amazing, continuing Miuccia Prada's crusade to evolve the brand into something other than just Prada's little sister. The show had such an entirely distinct personality - still very Miuccia, but so strong and powerful and chic all the same. The jewel-toned satin-for-day theme continued Prada's Milan message, except this time with skinny-legged, blocky-topped power suiting replacing Prada's super short shorts. There were also new pencil skirt silhouettes, now longer and skinnier than what's been on the runways this year. The look was flawless, making silhouettes that should feel outdated and familiar now seem entirely fresh and unpredictable, something only Miuccia could pull off. The best part of the show? The most covetable shoes I have seen in years. Fantastic!
