Miuccia Prada told WWD that she was channeling “female trouble” for the Miu Miu Spring 2015 collection. “Female Trouble” is also the title of the elusive and genius John Waters’ 1974 film about a spoiled schoolgirl who runs away from home, gets pregnant, and ends up modeling for crime-committing beauticians. The story line informs the inspiration and flow of the show. Miuccia keeps the ensembles inherently ’70s, the decade the film took place in, and ebbs from prim to promiscuous as each outfit walked out. Pastel satin and checkered wool mix with dyed leather and delicate silk, encapsulating the dynamic between good and bad gal influences. Car coats, cropped tuxedo tops, skin-skimming pencil skirts, chunky belts, and perfectly pressed trousers litter the line up.
Prada’s ability for storytelling within her collections creates the alluring depth within her garments. Her full understanding for the girl she is designing for is what allows her collections to come to life. She describes this season’s girl as “apparently very sweet but in the end, deep down, very nasty.”
