Released this morning to promote Love magazine's third issue, The Love Thing features not the supers which graced Katie Grand's eight covers but instead Prada-clad Kasia Struss, Lindsay Wixson, Pixie Geldof, Agyness Deyn, and Dree Hemingway. The models play in traffic while wearing leopard coats, sheer trenches, black garters, or nothing at all.
>> At 15, Lindsey Wixson Not Ready to Bare All —Lindsey Wixson, who is the current face of Miu Miu after being hand selected by Steven Meisel for a Vogue Italia shoot, asked for a bra to put under her see-through top on a recent W shoot. W points out: "A lot of other models wouldn't have done that." Wixson's response? "I'm 15 and even though I freaked a little, I know for a fact that my mom would freak ten times as much. I just couldn't be flashing everyone out there." [W]
>> Kate Moss, who attended Yves Saint Laurent a couple of days ago, was in the house for Miu Miu — as were Baz Luhrmann and Renee Zellweger. Miuccia Prada took one of her favorite themes — "pretty perversity," as Suzy Menkes describes it — and sent out a trail of looks mixing prints of cats, swallows, or reclining nudes. Daisy fasteners were affixed on clutch bags.
“It is fresh — about how innocence can survive in this world,” Prada said of the collection, which juxtaposed sweet skirts and schoolgirl collars with bra-like cut-outs and harnesses; Prada exclusive Lindsay Wixson closed, wearing a crystal "rib-lace" — a harness-like necklace that passed beneath the bra.
Interesting side-note — apparently Miu Miu has departed from a number of US department stores after a disagreement over how it should be displayed, writes the Wall Street Journal: "the company wanted their own store-in-stores, while the stores wanted to mix Miu Miu in with the other bags, according to a person familiar with the company."
