Fashion Inspiration From Film- Miu Miu Fall 2011 Channels Hitchcock
A little something I noticed…
While many designers past & present have taken inspiration from the seminal films of Alfred Hitchcock including Alexander McQueen and his blockbuster tribute to Tippi Hedren in ‘The Birds‘ for Fall 2005, one of us was thrilled to catch Miuccia Prada’s probable inspirations for Fall 2011 in another Hitchcock film, ‘Shadow of a Doubt.‘
Her wonderous ode to 40′s on-screen broad-shouldered glamour was quite evident on the runway for Fall and quite evocative of Teresa Wright’s confused yet nevertheless put-together character in the film.

Besides the refined silhouette’s and the natural, subdued color-ways, one of the most stand-out got-you moments came when we noticed Wright wearing two swallow pins that are dead-ringers for Miuccia’s sequined swallow appliqued adornments throughout her hit collection.
Call it a true welcomed “return to old Hollywood glamour” if you will, as we ourselves find that trite saying fitting this time around.– Naveed Hussain
