Miu Miu

Miu Miu — Worn by independent spirits like Chloë Sevigny, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Katie Holmes, Miu Miu’s mix of idiosyncratic charm and girlish sophistication—a vision crystallized in this season’s collection—has attracted a legion of young women who are not only followers, but die-hard fans. “This season is about freshness, about how innocence can survive in this world,” explains designer Miuccia Prada, “and working out what it means to be a woman in this age of contrasts.”
