Designed by billionaire head of Miu Miu, Miuccia Prada, the skirt was recently described by Fashion as a ‘naughty schoolgirl-esque design that’s less of a skirt and more of a belt’.
Since debuting at their SS20 show in Paris in October, the skirt has spawned dozens of memes — with one fashion follower quipped on Instagram, “I see that Miu Miu skirt more than my own family.”

Despite being widely despised for their utterly unflattering cut, hip-closing skirts made a surprising appearance in Miu Miu’s Spring 2022 showcase in Paris, nearly 20 years since they were last seen on Noughties stars such as Paris Hilton and Christina Aguilera.
Powerhouse Prada’s “little sister” label sent models up the runway in skirts so small they could be mistaken for a belt, with belly-bare waistbands hanging right below the hipbones.
Micro-zoom lines were also seen on the runways of Versace and D&G SS22.
