Miu Miu's got me dreaming.

The word is out and about that Miu Miu's Fall '10 campaign video was directed by Madonna!
“We were supposed to shoot a video, so Madonna said she wanted to direct it. They said she could do it but they weren’t going to pay her and she started laughing. She put on her iPod and taught us moves and we shot the video for two hours.” says Siri Tollerod, who stars in the campaign.
Watching the video, you can ovbiously see Madonna's creative initiative to it.

As for the collection, I love it! Every piece is so wearable and cute...and it has the girlish mod feel to it which reflects the brands youthful, feminine outlook.

And it looks like the fashion editors feel the same way about the collection, where the covers of Vogue, Elle and W all featured the same Miu Miu dress! While Bristish Vogue and W featured the same dress in orange and yellow, Elle was featured a more subtule version in lilac and lace.

Is it 1960 or 2010?

I seems like we're having a blast from the past-- with 60s inspired style coming from all different directions!

60s Supermodel- Jean Shrimpton in a ruffle bustier. It seems that this may have influenced Prada's Fall 2010 ready-to-wear collection. (Miranda Kerr)

Lindsey Wixson, in the Miu Miu 2010 ad campaigns really reminded me of 60s supermodel twiggy, with the innocent, doll-like face, skinny legs and eyes that pop with thick eyeliner and thick lashes. But it wasn't only the model that made Miu Miu go 60s, it was the actual collection- with mini-skirts, fun prints and amazing platform shoes!

I belive the Missoni 2011 Resort collection is pretty self-explanatory. The tribal prints, graphic prints, scarves, jewerly and hats-- it's all like a big 60s mash-up...(but an awesome one).

Which also reminds me of the Chanel 2011 Resort Collection- that had a HUGE, and I say HUGE 60s vibe:

I now rest my case!

Currently crushing on....

This playful, red dress from the Versus Fall 2010 ready-to-wear collection particulary caught my eye a couple of days ago. (Model: Lindsey Wixson)
I absolutely adore the heart cut-out bustier, and how the dress stops at the waist and then goes out. It can be used casual with a jacket and accessories or with your favourite pair of heels for a night out- this is a more playful version of all the micro-minis we've been seeing this season and it's definately going to stay a la mode!

Summer or Winter...

So, you may be expecting a summer post right now- because right now it's all about summer style! But in the Southern Hemisphere, it's winter at the moment. So I decided to be nice to both sides of the equator by finding a style that can work in both summer and winter...and I stumbled upon this set and thought it was the perfect example of what I wanted to express.

Miu Miu Platform Shoes.

Miu Miu is becoming really popular amongst many fashionistas on and I understand why- the new prints, the doll-like style, and amongst all... THE PLATFORMS!

The platform shoes are so cute and they can turn any dull outfit into one that's uber cute! Plus, since the heel is really thick- it will be really good for walking! Practical and stylish- can it get any better? Not to mention the Miu Miu S/S prints and fun colours! I have a feeling it's going to be an "IT" shoe for a little while, I don't think it will last too long- but for now it's becoming a spreading epidemic that you don't want to miss!
