For every Miu Miu show, Miuccia Prada tends to tow the lines between the innocent and the perverse. Her Fall 2019 show was no exception, only that there was a darkness to it that was both melancholy to it that was both romantic and current. The first look alone encapsulated the look and narrative for the season—a pale pink floral top with a turtleneck frill worn with black min-shirts, sheer thigh-high socks, and laced-up combat boots layered under a dark davy cape. Some elements veered into a girlier and relatively childlike sensibility, while others were more sexually subversive. Overall, the offering remained youthful, what with the camouflage hoodies, dainty floral dresses, and puffy dresses by the end. The clash of florals and camouflage prints gave it the signature Miuccia Prada penchant for bad taste, definitely, one to attract quintessential Prada fans to join in on the fun. But with innocence and perversion, Miuccia reflected that ate of both fashion and the world today—the need for security in the face of something new.
