MAKE WAY FOR THE MINI SKIRT
Having raised heads (and hemlines) last year on the runways of Versace, and Chanel, the mini skirt has made a resounding return to the top of the trends this spring/summer. Perhaps in response to the constraints and restrictions of the last two years, this particular revival speaks to a liberty and irreverence that fashion hasn't embraced in some time. This season's short and sweet set selection is a rebellious call to embrace fun, freedom, and femininity. From the knee-grazing to the thigh-skimming, no one can resist the modern mini's charms.
DIOR EMBRACES 1960S FEMININTY
Echoes of youthquake culture rocked Christian Dior, where Maria Grazia Chiuri found inspiration in the archives, borrowing mod-con silhouettes from Marc Bohan's 1961 collection. The result is a modern take on a retro silhouette, with Mondrian-esque orange and yellow striped skirts matched with tunics and short coats for an elegance 1960s siren Emma Peel would be proud to sashay in.
MIU MIU DROPS IT LOW
Meanwhile, Miu Miu's low-rise micro-cut has become somewhat of a style star in its own right, dominating the Instagram grids and TikTok homepages of fashion's early adopters. Think raw-edged khaki and grey skirts, slashed with a peek of pocket at the hem - not for the faint of heart, but a provocative and unapologetic statement for high summer celebrations.
JACQUEMUS MAKES LE SPLASH
For a softer adaptation of the trend, try the hot pink La Jupe Bagnu miniskirt by Jacquemus. Equal parts covetable and daring, the piece from the spring collection, deemed "Le Splash," can be easily dressed down with sandals and a tee or revved up with an oversized blazer and heels.
PRADA WORKS TAILS & TRAINS
Not even eveningwear was immune to the allure of the shorten-than-short hemline this season. Prada's romantic Double Satin miniskirts in baby pink and orange are cleverly tailored with a train for a perfect compromise of sense and extravagance.
The kings of feminine dressing, Dolce & Gabbana, present a selection of skirts for all tastes with their rose and leopard printed minis to the show-stopping, futuristic crystal-effect micro.
LOEWE LEADS THE MARCH
An honourable mention this season goes out to Loewe's side-split sequin show-stopper. Creative director Jonathan Anderson, inspired by Italian painter Jacopo da Pontormo, created a Studio 54-worthy skirt that sums up the fun and exuberance of this trend.
This season's selection illustrates the enduring allure of the miniskirt. From workwear to barely-there and everything in between, the mini and micro skirt has a cut, shape, and style for every dresser. When it comes to this summer, the overriding mood is this; life is short, so wear the skirt.
