i quite liked it actually. again, like with every season, this is just a continuation of the Prada collection of the same season to me.

i liked everything, it's very spring i think!

Again, this is ONE outfit done over and over again in different materials! This is really uninspired, as if she couldn't bother after all, with the effort. The wraps with the big black velvet bow are horrible bridesmaid stuff.

Miuccia for me is just the greatest. I''m always in awe how I feel confused when I first see her Miu Miu collections, thinking how on earth did she come up with this and am I supposed to like it? But her collections fascinate me like no other collection does, they make me think, the pictures stay with me and the more I think about it, the more it feels like complete genius. I truly admire her like noone else in the business. Only Alexander McQueen managed to fascinate me as much as she does.

yeah, but really noone looks good in that collection. meanwhile, people have a shot, albeit slim, at looking good in these clothes

the shoes are beyond any help tho.

Sometime I just think Miuccia is trolling with the collections she puts out. And while everyone is creaming themselves over her "genius" she laughs at thinks of even more ridiculous things she could pass for "fashion".

Yes. Miuccia is a genius. True visionarie. The more u look at the collection, the more u understand why she designs these...

Only Miuccia could brilliantly execute both a 60s sock hop (at Prada) and early 70s folky (here at Miu Miu) with equal ease in one season. Love the emphasis on the shoulders in this collection, the prints are fun, the smock detailing great, the accessories a blast -- the looks are all so sweet without being saccharine. I love it, so inspiring!

Love it especially the skirts. Plenty of different colours and shapes.
That red coat is awesome. Shame about the shoes.

I feel like Miucca could send models down the runway smeared in feces and there'd still be people declaring it as misunderstood genius and finding a way to like what is an otherwise an unattractive, unflattering collection. "I don't normally like feces, but Miucci has really made a nice play on the texture....etc."

I think we all realize people do this. I think we all also realize people will bash a collection regardless of it's brilliance if they dislike the designer. I don't' think we need to read comments stating this obvious fact in every thread. Boring.

I understand people not liking this collection, but it's absurd to call this uninspired. Really? Your concept of inspiration is really skewed if you think this uninspired.

The collection looks like a hybrid of Prada's Spring 2012 and Miu Miu's last collection. It's sweet, but there is a sense of danger. Although, overall it's playful and whimsical, I find some looks matronly and dated. Miu Miu has been a lot more mature than Prada since last season and this collection is no exception.

With that said, I do like the collection. However, I don't foresee this translating well off the runway, much like Prada's Fall 2011 collection. It could end up looking very doubty on the wrong person.

I'm a huge Miu Miu fan and I am disappointed in this collection. I do like a few pieces but I'm not in love with it like I usually am.
