Inside the New New Miu Miu

Baby's all grown up!

In case its price tags of late didn't let the cat out of the bag, Miu Miu has outgrown its days of living in Prada's shadow. All dressed up a la a French bordello, its newly redesigned SoHo digs re-opening is its debutante ball.

Inspired by the Paris restaurant Lapérouse, where Miu Miu staged its fall/winter 06-07 runway show, and designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi, the space features gold brocade covered walls and ceilings juxtaposed with perforated steel fixtures.
