MIU MIU SS17 – 1960’s INSPIRED – Lucy Madge
From Miu Miu’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection we can see Miuccia Prada has taken inspiration from the 1960’s. This was the period in time that she knows too well as she grew up in this optimistic period of time.
The Sixties was dominated by the Vietnam War, Civil Rights Protests, the 60s also saw the assassinations of US President John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Cuban Missile Crisis, and finally ended on a good note when the first man is landed on the moon .
However, the fashion at this point in time was very diverse. It broke many fashion traditions. The 60’s were Psychedelic. Short skirts, PVC, culottes, and wacky prints were not shy. We can see this 1960’s taste apparent in the SS17 Miu Miu collection.
