I thought the cat prints were so incredibly tacky and reminiscent of my third grade teacher, Mrs.Hararcz. Mrs. Hararcz was infamous for her tacky sweaters. No one, and I mean no one could out tacky her sweaters. You know the ones I'm talking about.. the frumpy, shapeless cardigans with a classroom scene of teacher in front of her students smiling pointing at the chalkboard with her ruler. Which is ironic because Mrs.Hararcz never smiled. In fact she THREW OUT my 64 pack of Crayolas because I was "making a scene" after spilling a few on the ground! I will never forget that. Maybe that's why I wasn't keen on the prints, because they reminded me of my rage-aholic teacher. Annnnyways that's who I imagined Miu Miu's target customer- a frumpy school teacher.
I know Tavi has been flaunting her Miu MIu gear for a while now, but l still wasn't convinced that real (chic) people wear the cats.
However, most recently I have been seeing these Miu Miu prints everywhere. The seemingly infinite ways to make these cheesy print look chic made me fall in love.
I imagine Miuccia Prada was probably inspired by these rather "hip" cats.
Were you skeptical of the prints? Change of heart, perhaps?
