Miu Miu Sunglasses

About the Miu Miu Brand

Miu Miu opened in 1993 and is headed by Miuccia Prada (the name of the collection is taken from her nickname). The brand started as an offshoot of Prada and describes its mission as "...embracing both couture savoir-faire and refined experimentalism, Miu Miu explores fashion as a rarefied form, giving elegance and sophistication a new and twisted meaning. Diverse inspirations, playing on masculine and feminine, historic references and a jilted modernity come together unexpectedly."

When asked recently about the difference between Miu Miu and Prada, Miuccia Prada offered the following:

"Designing for me is a very complex process. There are many ideas that I want to express in one object, very often contradictory. The creative process in Miu Miu is completely different from that of Prada. Miu Miu is not as complicated and though out as Prada. Rather than being young, Miu Miu is immediate. Prada is very sophisticated and considered; Miu Miu is much more naïve. The solution, when I am working on Miu Miu, has to come immediately, instinctively, spontaneously with whatever is available at the moment. If I think three times, I stop."

Miu Miu has several standout designs and are favoured by A-listers such as Miranda Kerr, Rihanna, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The current collection feature bold geometric shapes, round lenses, and even a "cut-off" look (the Rasoir). Some variants are accented with glitter or clad with suede.
