Style on Trial: Miu Miu’s crystal accented top

Earlier this week we put Miu Miu’s cat print silk top on trial, not least for crimes against erect nipples. We’re sure, however that many of you are not, in fact, cat people (or bird people for that matter) and were therefore disappointed by the blouse’s theme. Fear not! Miu Miu have created another, animal-free number to answer your prayers!

Yes, you can now draw attention to your boobs without having to sport tiny felines. In fact, you can impersonate an ice dancer, what with the nude cotton bodice creating the impression that you are actually naked but for some ill-advised crystal accents which wouldn’t even cover your modesty. Well, that and those cotton puff sleeves…

What do you think – could you pull this off without looking a bit too Dorothy Hamill? If so you can buy one of your very own from

    Rock Hyrax

    Perfect for anyone wanting to look overdressed while waiting on tables at a beer festival. I suppose we should be glad it looks like that on a person because flat like that it looks like a darts player’s shirt…

    I actually kind of like that shirt, but I would never wear it myself because I already have naturally big breasts (too big IMO) and I don’t care to bring extra attention to them with giant swirly sequins.

    I love the collection and I love the shirt as – as fashion, but not a piece of clothing. Does that make sense? It is a beautiful shirt, and I would probably buy a knockoff, but it really has to be asked how it would fall on a person and what it would be worn with. I think the normal contours of a torso would make it look absurd, and it seems like any fairly simple bottoms worn with it, to keep attention on the top, would just look kind of messy and hipster-y.

    Animal free? One could just hope… but noooooo !
    In case you miss the birds, take a look on the back. And even without any living creatures pictured on it, the front is not better.

    This looks like something out of 2003
    Like you bought it cheap (And perhaps, dare I say.. drunk or high?) at a yardsale at ya neighbours.

    And why the angel-ish “wings” of random crap from the beach ? I think the only thing holding me up is I don’t know the price 😀

    I say ARREST!
