Inside Miu Miu's Pre-Fall Collection

Stella McCartney launched her Fall 2016 collection at Amoeba Records in Los Angeles, with a whole bunch of cool guests.

It's hitting all the right notes.

I've always been partial to Miu Miu.  Call me biased, but a line helmed by the legendary Miuccia Prada and aimed towards younger women sounds pretty damn good.  And time and time again, it is.

Miu Miu debuted their Pre-Fall 2016 collection just on the eve of Paris Couture Week, at their flagship boutique.  Young models like 17 year-old Prada muse Yasmin Wijnaldum and Estella Boersma contributed to a down to earth, nostalgic atmosphere on the catwalk.  The calm before the storm, if you will.  

But despite the subdued environment, the clothing was of course, anything but.  Miu Miu artfully experimented with belted 70s trenches embellished with gemstones and lace, added woolly knee socks to floral A-line gowns, and showed all kinds of coats and sweaters with decked out yokes.  As always, it played to the brand's appeal to youthful customers who want to wear spirited, quirky, courageous clothes that reflect their own outlook on life.  And therein lies that magic of Miu Miu; they don't underestimate the substance of their young clientel, they harness it.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
