Staged inside an Arch plywood Protestant church, the show for the Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2015 ready-to-wear collection brought a different atmosphere. With the high, dark arches and the only existing light illuminating the runway floor, the whole place appeared to create a deep, underwater "cave like" feel.
The setting, though was presumed to emit a holy presence, was ironically the opposite for the collection presentation. With the eccentric sounds from the background music, what was portrayed seemed to be "a good girl gone bad".
Models walked with delicate, frilled cropped tops, showing their belly, portraying the innocence of a girl in a somber setting, as if they were going through dark obstacles and places that they had to face in life. The oversized belts, which didn't really complement that well with the whole looks, had to be there to show a sense of adventure, as if they had to put on their "seat belts" to face those obstacles looming ahead. Wet hair combed back reinforced the underwater look and the sweet dark feel of the whole collection.
What Miuccia Prada is always so good at is creating an "out of this world" experience for people to contemplate. And this collection was no exception.
