Spotlight on Designer: Miu Miu Fall 2011 Ready To Wear: SUBLIME and Refined

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I was pleasantly delighted by the Miu Miu Fall 2011 RTW collection for its elegance and creativity.  It's a rare treat when so many of the outfits modeled on the runway are both modest and beautiful. In my search for tznius (modest) fashion, it's not always easy to come across sleeved and knee length looks that are also as chic as my discerning eye craves. And this collection definitely delivers.

Although we're all gearing up for summer and it's finally nice enough to stow away our winter clothing, I couldn't help but post these fall looks for future reference. Here are some fashion tips I love, inspired by these looks:

1. There is nothing more chic than a sleeved dress with a knee length skirt.

2. I'm crazy about the sash like belts used to add visual interest to an otherwise basic dress. The thickness of the sash and the folds and shapes on it are so artistic and are also super flattering for hiding a belly or hips.

3. Notice the unique use of fur as a sash or a stole and how it changes the entire look of a basic dress. No need to match....I love brown fur with a black or grey dress.

4. Simple color blocking still works for fall especially when using sophisticated colors.

5.Whimsical,  airy prints look fabulous on a simple silhouette.

6. Sparkly shoes, colorful cat-eye sunglasses and bold lips add a fun touch to an otherwise simple look. Don't be afraid to add the fun touches.

This collection is a lesson in being adventurous in fashion. It's fresh and inspiring and has me thinking about what I already own and how I can create my own personal look from pieces I already have. After all, putting together an outfit is so much more than just buying a dress.  

So go ahead be your own designer, play with your pieces and wear whatever you dream of!

Til next time,

  1. miumiu can do no wrong in my eyes!

  2. This is an interesting post. Might you be jewish by any chance? :)

  3. If you go to or put this link in ur browser, look for religion bloggers in the directory. It will connect you with Jewish people from Israel, Palestine, Turkey, and more. And if you type, Jewish into the box, 6 people will come up. Connect with them and their followers might follow you. And if you get a chance head over to and look at Prada Spring R-T-W 2011 and Miu Miu R-T-W Spring 2011 for modest looks. Although Prada has some reds and orthodox Jewish women arent supposed to wear red. Good luck!

  4. Im not jewish, sorry. I just know from most of my close friends from high school and junior high. They range from orthodox to unorthodox, to in the middle (Im not sure if it has a name, I think conservative jew?). And for the most part I went to school in the jewish community, so I would see every one on Saturdays walking to the synagouge. :)

  5. Loving this entire collection...and my new miu miu shoes have converted me to a TOTAL follower.
    Hope all is well:)
