Miu Miu‘s Spring 2010 collection had cute written all over it. Remember all those exaggerated satin platform mary janes with adorable prints like cats, sparrows or flowers on it? I must admit it has taken me a while to warm up to this collection, but that’s often the case with me and Miuccia Prada’s designs. I like how she keeps trialling my aesthetics comfort zone.

Not Too Coy “Casanova-Z” Platform Sandals

UPDATE (12/18/2010): I’m pretty sure Not Too Coy‘s “Casanova-Z” platforms are just a rebranded version of Mojo Moxy’s “Catty” sandals because they’re dead-on identical with the same prints and colors except Not Too Coy has made an additional black satin version which I prefer over those floral prints.

Mojo Moxy “Catty” Ankle-Strap Sandals

OK, Mojo Moxy, we have to talk. Like seriously. How could you have gone so far to make an almost identical Miu Miu copy but then mess up the most important part of this shoe? The sparrow print. If you didn’t want to be an obvious copycat, why didn’t you just pick a different animal print instead of putting those ugly watercolor flowers on it? It totally ruins an otherwise perfectly perfect Miu Miu alternative. Shame on you! Do it right or don’t do it at all. Available in grey, brown and pink floral satin.

    i wouldn’t be talking. The floral print is amazing!. Beautifully perfect cause they look vintage + there in current season. The birds don’t do it for me. Nice blush colour though.

  • Vanessa

    I have to say I agree with ishtar! That flower print is definitely a step up from those sparrows!

  • ari_tres_chic

    ugh! The beauty of the miumiu IS the simplicity (classic) of the fabric + the sparkle/dazzling effect of the embellishments. Mojomoxy ruined the whole concept by using a flower print that is too busy then u add the embellishments and it just makes it too much…..unbalanced! Its really gaudy, and EVERY ONE will know its a CHEAP KNOCK OFF!!! Is it me or does the fabric look like its pulling/tugging?

  • You should check out these Filthy Magic pumps! They look almost identical to the real ones! $199
