Shoe Close-Up: Miu Miu

The footwear message at Miu Miu’s fall ’15 show in Paris was a mixed bag, with a rolling assortment of trends ranging from oversized buckles to pointy stilettos. Modified Mary Janes took center stage in both glitter and solid patent colors, a look reminiscent of sister label Prada’s fall ’15 show, which presented satin block-heeled versions.

The new Mary Jane was also a theme explored at Miuccia Prada’s spring ’07 show for Miu Miu, though this season’s take was decidedly more modern, with pointier toes and shinier leather choices.

A new detail of interest for the label was oversized, pilgrim-style buckles, which were added to square-toe pumps and pointy kitten-heel slingbacks. The style was the perfect example of taking a restrained design and making it feel very much more in-the-now (after all, what’s old can always be new).

With a recurring focus on its accessories business, Miu Miu managed to evolve from its previous season while still keeping the brand’s youthful identity intact.

Last season, it focused on oversized bows, used on the uppers of patent leather ankle boots.

Next show? We hope for something drastically different.
