What’s Old is New Again…

I have yet to come across an October fashion mag that hasn’t featured this ultra-mod dress with a modern twist (the cutout/sheer trend) by Miu Miu. Chloe Sevengny, a spokesperson for the brand, also donned said dress on the red carpet at the Met’s Costume Institute Gala earlier this year. And when I see it, all I can think about is a 1960s Paco Rabanne mini dress with the same, tiered mirrored look. Resemblance? Let me know if you agree!
