“Ciao, I’m Miuccia, nice to meet you,” Miuccia Prada said to Marine Vacth as the French actress made her way through the crowd at the opening of Miu Miu’s new Herzog & De Meuron-designed flagship store in Tokyo’s Aoyama district. Prada and her husband, the company’s chief executive officer Patrizio Bertelli, feted the store Thursday evening along with a roster of Miu Miu campaign girls past and present — namely Imogen Poots, Stacy Martin, Hailee Steinfeld, Mia Goth and Vacth — as well as Zhang Ziyi and Rinko Kikuchi. Comme des Garçons’ Rei Kawakubo and Adrian Joffe popped in on the early side — before most of the other guests arrived, Prada gave the couple a personal tour. And it seems that was only part of the designers’ interaction this week: A source said the two designers met at CDG’s headquarters for an hour and half on Wednesday.

"Instinct? I like that word," said Miuccia Prada after her show. For indeed, like all great designers, she is led by her instincts, and these were animal ones on display today. "I wanted to put things together in a naive way, not caring, always wrong, with that attitude of instinct. It started with the mutation of ostrich in Prada, the genetic modification, the idea of a new species."
