I once read that Miu Miu is one of the few brands in which you can ask a sales associate at a Miu Miu store the question if a certain pair of shoes came in glitter. By this, this person meant that most Miu Miu shoes are both bright and shiny, making for a brilliant combination. Given the success shoes like that have had with the brand it’s no surprise the Miu Miu Resort 2013 collection is full of them.
We first got a glimpse at the shoes to come in the campaign (shot by Steven Miesel, you can check out the campaign here.) As playful as resort collections are meant to be and as glamorous as Miu Miu can get, an undeniably great cast of models dressed bold colors and huge satin head bands showcased styles that reminded us of the 1950’s.
A fantastic tease, we were able to see some metallic, patent leather and suede shoes with huge platforms and even higher heels. Truth be told, and although the campaign is very 1950’s, the shoes remind me a lot of the 1970’s disco era. And if you have seen the Prada Resort 2013 campaign you know what I am talking about. It might be a cliché but the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. And even though we didn’t see any shoes full of glitter on the campaign, it didn’t take very long for shiny ones to become available online.
New colors? Not that I see: I see edera, a color originally seen at the Fall 2010 collection (remember that gorgeous green bow bag?) I also see nero, navy and granato. And of course, the ultimate party shoe: platform sandals and mary jeans filled with glitter! The best selection of the Miu Miu Resort 2013 shoes is available via Nordstrom. Not only is Nordstrom a great shopping website to find Miu Miu shoes, but there are also other great sites like www.cheekybingo.com where one can be casually entertained and earn money!
