Miu Miu has furthered its upcycling initiative this season with a limited edition of leather jackets that were specially created and showcased on the Fall/Winter 2022 runway. In line with the Italian fashion house’s ideologies on sustainability and extending the lives of pre-owned clothing, Miu Miu set on to create not more than 50 jackets, with each one carefully retrieved from vintage markets across the world. They were then taken to the Miu Miu ateliers to be reworked and refashioned dedicatedly by hand.

With this drop, Miu Miu also aims to challenge how the leather jacket’s perception has always been linked to the predominantly male subculture and rebel youth. To that end, the jackets are rendered with feminine elements all over, which also reflect the fashion house’s codes, such as 1920s-inspired collars, floral and crystal embellishments, python-print leather, and satin ribbon trim. The accompanying campaign continues to play with the connotation with a cast featuring actors and model Ever Anderson, Esther McGregor, and Mame Bineta Sane posing alongside shiny vintage motorcycles, gleaming metal, and inky rubber, in an urban subway.

The Upcycled by Miu Miu project debuted in 2020, and also falls in line with Miuccia Prada’s other sustainability initiatives, such as the Prada Re-Nylon collection. The limited edition jackets arrive in the UAE this month, and will be available exclusively at the Miu Miu boutique in Fashion Avenue, The Dubai Mall.

Inspired by a strong vision to create the unknown from the known, Miu Miu’s FW 2022 collection carries with it a sense of renewed nostalgia. Weaving revered summer fabrics into warm winter wear, the fashion house once again proves that pieces from the past can always be elegantly rekindled.
By reworking previous collections as the seasons change, a whole new plethora of options emerge. Proportions are re-examined, and a new sense of panache subtly imbues the classic checked tweeds and lace dresses, along with retouched leather pieces that welcome winter in its full glory.

The collection doesn’t just stop with its augmented pieces, but also rouses a new meaning through broader themes and values. With feminine nuances subtly showcased in every piece, Miu Miu reflects the house’s fundamental persona of strength and freedom, advocating that style is a state of mind that tethers the like-minded. Portraying elements of youth, spirit, rebellion and liberty, Miu Miu goes beyond the very notions of what each sentiment means; indicating that delicacy holds an unseen power, strength lies in vulnerable tenderness, and profound wisdom can be found in youth.
Flag-bearing the idea that one can house various ideas and viewpoints by revising and remixing them, the brand’s latest line serves as proof that clothing can be evocative and give rise to new thoughts and sentiments.

7 Standout Beauty Trends from the SS22 Runways

7 Standout Beauty Trends from the SS22 Runways

With fashion week finally back in the flesh for the spring/summer 2022 shows, designers were in the mood to celebrate. In fact, they were in the mood to party, with nostalgic nods to Y2K club culture and the hedonistic days of Studio 54. Cue statement hairdos featuring intricate details and larger-than-life accessories, and high glam make-up replete with all the right kinds of shimmer and shine. Then, there were those beauty moments that were so out there they bordered on the surreal. Below, Vogue rounds up the seven standout beauty trends from the spring/summer 2022 runways.
1. Shimmer and sparkle
Like the sparkling fizz of a champagne bottle, nothing feels more celebratory than a touch of shimmer. And at this season’s shows, there were plenty of them. There was full-on body glitter at Blumarine; light-reflecting lips and lids at Dolce & Gabbana; and streaks of shimmer running through gelled mohawks at Marni. And what about the full face of festival-inspired glitter at Dries Van Noten? Whichever way you wear it, it’s your time to shine.

2. Y2K beauty
At this season’s shows, Y2K fever was palpable. Not just in the clothes, but the hair and make-up, too. Note the poker-straight hair at Versace, Fendace, Chanel, and Stella McCartney, and the spiky top knots at Nensi Dojaka. There was also the high-shine lip gloss at Victoria Beckham, Dolce & Gabbana and Blumarine, and, of course, the frosted eyeshadow at Giorgio Armani. At this season’s shows, no one was immune to the millennium bug.

3. Intricate hair textures
Instead of the blunt bobs and dramatic fringes of seasons past, this season there was a focus on texture and detail. Just look at the intricate twists at Rejina Pyo, or the supersized plaits at Erdem. Or the exquisite neon wefts that Sam McKnight wove through models’ hair at Dries Van Noten. After a long period of leaving our hair to more or less look after itself, what with salon closures and working from home culture, this heavily detailed trend heralded a much-needed return to craft.

4. The wet look
There’s something about a glistening wet hair look that feels instantly fresh and alternative. It’s also the perfect way to revitalize your look without having to commit to a new cut or color. There are many ways to wear it, too. At Richard Quinn, hairstylist Sam McKnight transformed models, Lila Moss and Stella Jones, into his “alien angels”, by parting their hair into three sections and slicking it back in various directions.
Meanwhile, at Miu Miu, Guido accessed a kind of subcultural cool by slicking models’ hair into deep side-partings. It was the same at Balenciaga, where Holli Smith stuck models’ fringes to their foreheads. At Chloé, James Pecis leaned into the idea even further, creating an almost soaking wet effect on models that looked as though they’d just emerged from the sea.

5. Statement hair accessories
Another standout hair trend at the spring/summer 2022 shows was the statement hair accessory. See the larger-than-life spherical confections at Harris Reed or the Surrealist-inspired hats at Schiaparelli. There were also dainty white bows at Giambattista Valli, nostalgic headscarves at Versace, and a beaded, child-like mobile at Moschino. Not to mention Simone Rocha’s signature hair clips and bejeweled tiaras.

6. Street-style hues
Amongst the nostalgic references and directional hair trends, it was refreshing to see moments of colorful whimsy. Take the unexpected pastel-hued crops at Loewe, or the street-style-inspired accents of mauve, copper, and Bottega green at Valentino, both courtesy of Guido Palau, both celebrations of individuality.

7. The new black eyeliner
In a similar vein to those street-style hues, this season’s black eyeliner takes its cues from youthful self-expression. At Givenchy, Lucia Pieroni created feathery black lines around models’ eyes in an apparent reference to Harajuku street culture. Meanwhile, at Dior, Peter Philips used a mixture of white and black eyeliner to create a double lower and upper feline flick that felt modern and countercultural. It was the same at Marine Serre, where thick feline flicks and rims under eyes felt cool and rebellious.

12 Summer Denim Buys with Plenty of Mix-and-Match Potential

12 Summer Denim Buys with Plenty of Mix-and-Match Potential

After a prolonged stint at home in your sweats, it’s finally time to step up your post-quarantine style game and there’s no better place to start than with one of SS21’s biggest trends: denim. From classic jeans to resort-ready dresses, board shorts, hats and bags, runway-inspired denim is everywhere.
While the 90s offered up iconic body-con silhouettes (thank you, Versace), today’s denim shapes are a little looser and laissez-faire. Pair jeans with sneakers and a baseball cap (Celine), add a touch of leopard (Paco Rabanne), or challenge convention by clashing an extra wide leg with a mini belt bag (Chanel).
With sustainability still high on everyone’s agenda, it’s no surprise that Levi’s and Miu Miu decided to collaborate recently on a new vintage denim collection created from past outfits. Iconic Levi’s pieces such as the 501 jeans and Trucker jacket were updated with feminine details including hand-embroidery, beading, and crystal — perfect for that summer getaway providing you can get your hands on one of the ultra-limited edition pieces.
As a packing staple that is both practical and versatile, denim is a must. We’ve rounded up 12 key buys with plenty of mix-and-match potential…

Now Available in Dubai, Miu Miu’s Upcycled Vintage Dresses are Wardrobe Treasures

Anyone who loves sourcing vintage clothing knows that wearing an item with history is a feeling unlike any other. Vintage finds are also the building blocks of a sustainable wardrobe, and when upcycled, can be pieces to treasure forever. Miuccia Prada is of the same mind, as she continues to champion sustainable fashion with the Upcycled by Miu Miu collection.
It is made up of 80 one-off vintage dresses that are reworked while still keeping the “memory” of the originals intact by preserving the fabric. The dresses are anonymous finds from the 30s and 80s, carefully sourced from vintage clothing stores and markets around the world. Every piece was then transformed as per the Miu Miu DNA, reflected in the use of the brand’s signature collar, bows, and embellishments. No two dresses are the same, and this is ensured by the painstaking hand-work on each of the pieces.

The collection is available across nine selected Miu Miu stores worldwide, however, seven out of the 80 dresses are being sold exclusively at the label’s boutique in Fashion Avenue, The Dubai Mall throughout February. If a shopper wishes to buy a dress outside of of the local selection, the boutique offers the option of placing a special order and then transferring the piece.
The designs were unveiled towards the end of 2020, following the sustainability initiatives of a number of designers and labels including Maison Margiela’s upcycled ‘Recicla’ pieces, Gabriela Hearst’s appointment as Chloé’s creative director, and Coach’s reworked 70s bags to name a few. The collection is also one of Mrs Prada’s steps in maintaining a circular fashion system, with the designer launching the Prada Re-Nylon collection in 2019, which used econyl — a regenerated-nylon yarn crafted from reclaimed ocean plastics, and fishing nets.
