F/W 2006 Miu Miu Printed "Lampshade" Runway Skirt

The fall 2006 Miu Miu show was received with accolades by the fashion crowd and it was really this particular collection that made Miu Miu into one of the major players. Style.com said of this show:

'"To make Miu Miu more special and important" was Miuccia Prada's post-show explanation for taking her diffusion collection to Paris. And special the small Sunday afternoon presentation at the famous Left Bank restaurant Laperouse was....The clothes, too, were elevated, thanks to what the designer described as couture touches: Silk was photo-printed with still lifes that resembled those on the eatery's walls, brocade was hand-painted with fleur-de-lis motifs, and the arms of techno-fabric shrunken jackets came in fox.

The Miu Miu girl, Prada said, is the same as her big sister, only a little more angelic. There was a youthful innocence to the models' white eyelashes, their schoolgirl uniforms, and their impossibly brief lampshade skirts....Another way the collections related was in Miu Miu's newly luxe, expensive-looking fabrics.'

This is one of those lampshade skirts and it is quite beautiful. A woven brocade has a beautiful design that covers the front. The back is kept a simple back. The shape is fabulous with a cinched in waist and fullness through the hips with lots of leg allowed to show with its shorter length. You can see how this silhouette has been picked up on and still is being shown in variations on the runway today. A fabulous little piece. Excellent condition
