If Lizzo’s 2019 Valentino nano-purse moment taught us anything about fashion, it’s to never underestimate the power of all things mini. The singer’s bizarrely tiny top-handle bag, one that made Jacquemus’ Le Chiquito look grande, broke the internet the second it was spotted on the AMAs red carpet. 

When Miuccia Prada sent her micro miniskirts down Miu Miu’s Spring/Summer 2022 runway in October, the designer knew exactly what she was doing. The natural appeal of any polarising garment, magnified in a time when we’re all deprived of sartorial and literal excitement, meant that it was only a matter of time before the world went berserk over another tiny titan — especially one that fed fashion’s seemingly never-ending obsession with nostalgia

Since its debut, Miu Miu’s SS22 khaki and grey pleated iterations have been buckled below the hips of every fashion icon you can imagine: Hailey Bieber, Emily Ratajowski, Zendaya, Naomi Campbell, Paloma Elsesser, Hunter Schafer, Chiara Ferragni … the sheer amount of names would, quite literally, make a list longer than the skirt itself. Elsewhere, stars like Dua Lipa and Olivia Rodrigo were also quick to flaunt their midriffs in camo and plaid iterations.
