What Could Glamour Mean to Generation Z? Look No Further Than Miu Miu for Answers

Whether intended or not, Muiccia Prada’s Fall/Winter 2020 outing at Miu Miu was our pathway to a much-needed escape from the sombre reality of the general state of the world.

To paint the scene, the floor was laid with vintage Art Deco carpet and along the runway, lined rows of plush velvet seats.
And did you really think a collection set within a theatre would be without its own lineup of heroines? In the model mix, we spotted singer Rita Ora and of course, 16-year-old actor Storm Reid who opened the show.
