July began with one of the most spectacular shows of recent times.
To welcome the show staged by Miu Miu was the historic Paris Hippodrome which since 1873 has hosted the most prestigious horse racing tournaments in the French capital.
The Hippodrome d’Auteuil was adapted by AMO for the occasion.
On the gallery, the architect Rem Koolhaas has positioned a wooden walkway creating a balcony useful both as a catwalk and as an observatory.
The aesthetic common thread of the show is the 1970s.
Miuccia Prada commented on her 51 looks: “There is a game about conservatism, camouflaged through glamor and fun. It’s my way of doing politics through fashion ”.
The show started with a real horse race commented by an expert British commentator who was attentive to the evolution of horses and jockeys. He then continued with the parade, ending with a super exclusive party attended by prominent celebrities.
But let’s see some details of the 51 looks proposed by the Italian fashion house.
Let’s start with the sleeves, the real protagonists of this show, strictly puffed and very voluminous. Not only shirts but also mini-dresses in metallic sequins with large draped sleeves embellished with crystals.
High-waisted shorts in leather or window fabric, shorts with lapels, long column skirts paired with shirts with deep, sensual V-shaped necklines.
Dress with floral prints or references to the world of horse racing. Striped sweaters to stay in the French theme given the choice of the city.
The Seventies style of the location can be found in leather trench coats, leather jackets and multicolor crochet tops. Not to mention the maxi cork wedges and the colorful and shiny flatforms that complete the look.
Typically English fabrics have been used for men’s jackets and have wide 80s shoulder pads.
The maxi hats have certainly not gone unnoticed. Big, double, showy, extravagant have made the outfits more funny.
More than just a show, it was a real show, with a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
A mix of innovative, glamorous and bon ton ideas that we will wear next spring.
