Urban, Yet Country

Manolo says, here is the article on the Fall/Winter Miu Miu collection for the mens.

For fall-winter 2005/2006, the Miu Miu collection accomplishes what other designers merely aspired to do — bring a gentlemanly country feeling into an urban environment. Wonderful camel coats, boxy velvets tuxedos, worsted wool suits and brilliant faux patchwork paisley shirts would look equally at home in the English and Italian countryside or inside London, Milan and New York. Miuccia used a similar vocabulary in her Prada show, classic staples in a men’s wardrobe, yet managed to take it much further in Miu Miu.

“Urban, yet country,” the designer told FWD.

The single best idea was using Shetland tweeds in gentlemanly suits and snug pants in old-fashioned materials. One in oatmeal bore an uncanny resemblance to a suit my own mother had made back in the sixties, so traditional was the fabric.

Manolo says, the Miu Miu collection it was, like the Prada collection, very good.

However, the Manolo he must now take the exception with all of the belting. Our Miu Miu, she is the genius, but she, of the course, also human, and so she makes the mistakes. Some they can be charming. Others, like the over belting, not.

The belts on the male models, they were too much distracting. See…

Manolo says, even the great ones, they make the mistakes.
