After a thirteen year break, Miu Miu's recent Paris Fashion Week show included an unexpected revival for the brand: menswear.
In the season that’s seen Miu Miu’s miniskirt offering inspire not only a hoard of fans, but it’s own viral Instagram page – the brand closed Paris Fashion Week ’22 with a bang.
Keeping with the school-uniform stylings the Italian label has been emulating this year, the show was full of checked blazers, wool coats, and even a white version of the infamous cut off micro-mini. What the attendees probably weren’t expecting, was the appearance of male models on the runway.
This is not a first for Miu Miu, their menswear selection having launched back in 1999. In 2008, Creative Director Miuccia Prada ended the menswear line and it has not been revived in almost thirteen years.
Including the clothing in the womenswear runway, the decision speaks to a prevailing genderfluid approach happening across luxury shows. The menswear included in the AW22 Ready-To-Wear collection is expected to exist as a season capsule.
Who knows what Miu Miu could be offering us next?
