When it comes to fashion, nobody can beat Miuccia Prada’s capability of designing something unexpected. Her ballet shoes, embellished with ribbons and buckles (I love this version), are one of the coolest accessories of the season. Choosing them for as a Fashion Crush would have been a bit obvious, so I picked this Miu Miu denim and velvet jacket which is another super cool creation by Mrs Prada.
This jacket reminds me of a redingote and I love clothes that seem revisited period costumes! Have I never mentioned that my first job was for the costume department of a theater? Actually I worked three days as a shop assistant, before, but that was a very short but pretty awful experience!
So, since I’ve always loved period films (and cartoons, too!) and since I have this professional background, I have a thing for every garment that is clearly inspired by the fashion of past centuries. Give me a military coat, a jacket inspired by hussars’ uniform, a corset, a shirt with a jabot and I’m in love!
This Miu Miu jacket, with its tails, its double-breasted fastening and the velvet details, won’t go unnoticed, for sure. I wouldn’t wear it with a floral frock, like they styled it at Net-à-Porter (the jacket was presented almost the same way during Miu Miu fashion show), but with skinny pants (ok, I would style almost everything with skinny pants, I know) and a simple, plain top or a ruffled shirt.
