INTO THE SAME IDEA... Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton FW 2011//12

Actually the ideas behind these two collections are very different, but somehow they managed it to come to some similarities anyway. Miu Miu has elaborated the early 40ties [all lefts], while Louis Vuitton's inspiration was fetish in fashion and the 30ties [all rights]. In any case we see wonderful and extremely smart outfits.
