In a collection sprung from the forties, Miuccia Prada has downplayed the playfulness in the clothes, morphing to a more austere silhouette. Where a glamorous modesty thrives throughout, the new Miu Miu sunglasses embody the ludic quality that could not be entirely contained. Shown first with the cat’s eye furrow, tortoise shell frame and yellow lens, they spell optimism. The shades that follow have a less exaggerated cat’s eye, but wilder frames – crystalized crimson, and glittering silver and gold. These shapely shades are some seriously covetable sunglasses for the Fall 2011 season.
