S/S 2005 Miu Miu Runway Geometric Print Silk Coat

About

The spring 2005 Miu Miu show was received with accolades by the fashion crowd and this particular show was a retail favorite. Style com said of this show:

'"It was short (hemline-wise), sweet, and unencumbered with any responsibility for changing the direction of fashion. And that's just the way Miu Miu, Prada's secondary line, ought to stand in relation to its older, more intellectual sister collection. For spring, the younger sibling has gone crazy over early seventies geometric prints—either the brown and beige patterns typical of English charity-shop coffee sets, or Marimekko-style florals in purple, blue, and red.

......As simple and carefree as all this may seem, Miuccia Prada is also being careful to pass her best-selling ideas on to Miu Miu for another season's enjoyment. Her jewelry-as-embellishment idea is now manifest, at a more accessible price, in the encrusted beaded necklines on dresses and in the panels applied to shantung jackets. All proof that Ms. Prada is a natural fashion democrat."'

Look 36 on the runway, this is one of the stand out pieces from the show and was wait listed and photoed everywhere. It is quite beautiful in its own quirky way. The light, coated silk has a beautiful geometric design that covers its surface. The shape is kept simple and boxy so it works well over most anything. You could in theory add a belt and cinch in waist if you like as well. The length is perfect and chic. Variations of this print has been picked up on since and are still is being shown in variations on the runways of today. A fabulous little piece. Excellent condition and was never worn.
