The best designers in the game are those who have built such a strong identity and signature, you can immediately tell they’re behind a particular piece of item or collection just by looking at it. And when it comes to flirty, coquettish, Lolita-esque designs with a hint of rebel chic, then Miuccia Prada is the reigning queen of that aesthetic with her Miu Miu label.
So when it comes to creating a new capsule range of fashion staples which drops in stores this month, Mrs Prada turns to the items that have become synonymous with that 25-year-old brand and making them more accessible thanks to their every day, get-things-done sensibility and potential for mixing and matching.
Called Iconic Wardrobe, this timeless collection spans ready-to-wear, bags, shoes and accessories and include typically Miu Miu trademark items like the chiffon midi dresses with ruffles, denim miniskirts and jackets adorned with patches and animal prints, the slouchy moto jacket and retro-fabulous cat eye sunnies. Here, we select the items every woman should have in their closets.
