Mood board: Miuccia Prada returned to her retro-inspired roots for autumn at Miu Miu, pulling out the polish and prim silhouettes of the 1950s but twisting the classicism with a hefty dose of exotic skins, animal prints, and slick fetish patent leathers. The result was a fantastic, fresh extravaganza of graphic pattern, intriguing texture and eye-busting colour that left a perfect taste in our fashion-month mouths.
Best in show: Miu Miu did some of the best renditions of animal patterns we've seen this season, playing with embossed crocodile on egg yolk-yellow or fire cone orange shiny plastic coats and pairing them with slick python skirts in lady-like circle skirt constructions. The pattern went into overdrive with layers of knit sweaters and printed blouses with 19th century flounces.
Finishing touches: The looks came showered in rich extras, from trapeze shaped bags with oversized cable handles, to kitten heeled pumps with cartoon-like buckles and exaggerated costume jewellery that left the model's necks and earrings dripping in Marie Antoinette-sized rocks.
