MIU MIU & PRADA – TWINS OR JUST SISTERS? – Lucy

Miu Miu and Prada may be owned by the same group but are they really that similar? – Lucy Madge


Miu Miu is thought to be the sister brand to Prada. Miu Miu offers a more sensual, rebellious vibe to dressing up in comparison to Prada.

I see Miu Miu and Prada like a set of eyebrows, not entirely the same but very much alike, just like sisters. From the imagery displayed below you can see how the designs are very similar, but ever so slightly different and varied.

From Miuccia Prada we are told that Miu Miu offers a more immediate reaction to trends, where as Prada is more planned and sophisticated. This is because Miu Miu is rather young in comparison to that of Prada. Therefore, although in the imagery we can see similarities between the two designer labels they are dissimilar in how they are thought out, but perhaps display similar themes due to trends and being part of the same fashion house.

I thought this would be an interesting factor to research as Prada as a whole group could impact on Miu Miu, and I wanted to find out how.
