For its Spring/Summer 2022 collection, Miu Miu experimented with perhaps the most controversial trend of the era: low rise bottoms.

Creative director Miuccia Prada decided to cut it up. “To cut is powerful – it is a direct action, something very basic that can have enormous impact”, she said ahead of her latest show. “Today, I am interested in the idea of economy – of paring back, working with the existing, the real, to transform what we already have”.
Mirrors line the runway to amplify each garment in an effort to inspire sultry sophistication. A series of extra low-rise mini skirts made their way down the runway, reminding viewers of Christina Aguilera’s unforgettable ultra-mini skirt from the 2002 VMAs. Signature house dramatically embellished dresses, and sleek textures unite in a way only Miu Miu pieces can, while a combination of cropped blazers and longline tailored coats bring a rhythm of differentiation to the collection.
There were lots of commercial pieces, too: wool suits paired with belted, low-slung skirts; oversize green or blue dégradé sweater sets; roomy gray trousers with a Katharine Hepburn feel, and a rack’s worth of luxe camel coats and trenches.
