Miu Miu focused on coats and camouflage prints for its fall/winter 2019 collection.

The Italian fashion house, helmed by creative director Miuccia Prada, unveiled the range at the Palais d’Iéna on the final day of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday (05Mar19), with the presentation drawing in celebrities including Elle Fanning, Poppy Delevingne, and Alexa Chung.

With the venue featuring video collages by artist Sharna Osborne, a Miu Miu spokesperson explained that the space was designed to “express an intimate vision of femininity, which echoes in the new collection”.

To open the spectacle, a model sported a pretty floral shirt and navy blue skirt, with the outfit toughened up via the addition of a long blue coat and edgy black lace-up biker boots.

A series of similar outfits featuring a delicate flower pattern followed, though Miuccia quickly returned to her signature subversive aesthetic, mixing ladylike silhouettes with much more masculine pieces. A highlight had to be a black minidress which was overlaid with a gauzy pink dress featuring pink and blue appliques, with the ensemble paired with thigh-high tights and chunky black sneakers.

And part way through the presentation, Miuccia took the urban warrior theme to the next level by introducing a lot of green and brown camouflage print, with the fabric incorporated into hoodies, long coats, sweater and short combinations, knee-length trousers and a scarf.

To conclude the show, the designer unveiled a black crochet dress with blue and grey roses attached to the shoulders, a line-up of army green coats paired with more classic floral skirts, and a black taffeta dress which was worn with a very dramatic hooded cape.

Lacoste and Louis Vuitton closed out Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday.
