Behold the Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2010 backstage goodness:
I defy you, dear readers, to tell me that this is not the most exquisite shoe porn you have ever seen. It's my current desktop wallpaper, but still I can't get enough. I'm tempted to print out a copy, laminate it and sleep with it under my pillow every night. I also think it would look fabulous blown up, placed in an ornate gilded frame and hung above my living room couch. Seriously. It's that awesome.
Clearly I'm not the only one obsessed with this incredibly lovely collection, which was by far my favourite of all the spring/summer offerings. Krisatomic posted the super-charming illustrations above on her blog a few days ago, and I was very jealous to read that she's actually seen many of the samples in person and has already tried on the swallow-print shoes. The closer these babies get to hitting stores, the further removed I get from reality, finding improbable ways to rationalize buying a pair of satin platform heels that will undoubtedly cost upwards of six or seven hundred dollars. But honestly, I don't know how I'll be able to resist handing over my credit card in a fit of Miu Miu madness. I mean, come on:
Utter perfection. I need them. And the clutch bags are pretty spectacular too:
Maybe I'll just commit to one big purchase this season and forego all the other little temptations that eventually add up. Yeah, that never works. Maybe Mrs. Prada would be kind enough to send me a pair? Oh right, I forgot, I'm not a grey-haired 13-year-old fashion prodigy. This purchase is going to require some serious strategizing.
What's your number one must-have for spring?
