FKA Twigs, Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski walk the Miu Miu runway
A surprise runway appearance is always a treat, and viewers were in for a treat at Miu Miu, where singer-songwriter FKA Twigs joined runway regulars Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski for the spring/ summer 2023 of the luxury brand.
The Caprisongs The entertainer made her way down the runway wearing a white collared shirt under a navy crew neck knit sweater, paired with an ultra-cropped nylon miniskirt with two oversized pockets.
Following the brand’s runaway success with its coveted ballet flats, Miu Miu is introducing another unexpected statement shoe into the mix – an open-toe flip-flop fused with a high-heeled boot. The models, including Twigs, all walked in the shoe which was available in black and brown to lime green, bright orange and neon pink in varying heights.
Hadid also walked the runway wearing the sandal/boot paired with a black buckled top with spaghetti straps and a low-rise black pencil skirt that exposed the Miu Miu belt of her underwear underneath.
Ratajkowski modeled the same top as Hadid with a camel-colored leather belted midi skirt with oversized pockets, worn low enough to also expose her underwear belt. The My body The author carried a black handbag while sporting a pair of the ankle-length version of the hybrid shoe.
Many fashion it girls sat in the front row, including Adwoa Aboah, Keke Palmer, King Richard actress and Miu Miu brand ambassador Demi Singleton, Emily in Paris star Camille Razat, singer Chlöe Bailey, Alexa Chung and many more.
Fashion house Miuccia Prada has been driving fashion trends for years and recently went viral with its Miu Miu micro mini skirt from the Spring/Summer 2022 collection. This season Ms. Prada is sticking to the ultra-low waist and loads up on distressed leather and nylon jackets, vests and skirts (mini and midi) with massive cargo pockets that could double as fanny packs. A practical choice, the designer said in a statement: “I wanted to explore the purpose of fashion, its raison d’être. Its usefulness in today’s society and culture. Fashion can have a meaning and a reason beyond utility – to decorate, to attract, it is a meaning. But it’s important that fashion works – I’m not anti-luxury but I’m anti-ostentation.
The venue was transformed into a futuristic submarine, thanks to Miu Miu’s collaboration with artist Shuang Li, while Eli Osheyack’s music thrilled the audience. “I always want to expand Miu Miu, open up, through our cast, through collaborating with artists,” Prada said. “It’s another translation, the notion of translating different ideas into the world of fashion, engaging in different creative spheres, enriching each other. It reflects the exchanges and communications of life.
