Compass F a shi o n MIU MIU MODA Extending over two floors and designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi, Miu Miu continues to expand its reign over fashion by arriving to Miami & The Design District with a summer collection hotter than the Florida sun. T E X T BY F R A N CE S C A C R UZ Miuccia Prada must have had a youthful 1950s-era Sophia Loren or perhaps a Claudia Cardinale in mind as the muse to her Spring/Summer collection. The designs include tailored knee-length skirts that are cinched at the waist by thick body-favoring belts. The shoes are gigantic platforms and ultra-feminine mules embellished by bows — they look like they’re right out of a Busby Berkeley musical. For the designer’s resort collection, the skirts run ultra mini — as if reawakening Steven Meisel’s collaboration with Madonna in the early ‘90s for their take on the mod ‘60s. Summer is here and Miu Miu’s moda is taking over; 190 NE 39th St.; MiuMiu.com. 36
