Miuccia Prada has always catered to a certain type of artsy, brainy woman. And now her Miu Miu label is giving fashion at large the think-tank treatment with a series of salons featuring leading names in fashion and art.
Hosted by girl-about-town and Prada muse Shala Monroque, Miu Miu Musings are modeled after the traditional literary salon, a forum where intellectuals can discuss lofty topics in an informal setting. It’s an idea that harkens back to the Socratic method and Prada’s own perpetual reinvention.
After three previous forums—two in New York and one in London—the series heads to Moscow on November 18, where leading tastemakers including André Leon Talley and textile designer Olya Thompson will discuss the topic of Frocks and Freedom at the Garage, the contemporary art center founded by Dasha Zhukova. We think Lenin would approve.
