2005 Shirt with Exaggerated Collar and Removable Cuffs in Fine Cotton Poplin
Size 40/15.75; men's M or fitted L.
MIU MIU men's pointy collar shirt from A/W 2005. Made in Italy.
In excellent used condition.
We have been unable to precisely date this shirt, even though it is likely from 2005 or 2006. It is a showpiece without reference labels, and it is possible that its design was not produced beyond the sampling stage. We have filed it under A/W 2005 for classification purposes, even though its fabric weight suggests a summer collection.
The shirt's design captures Miu Miu's irreverent combination of traditional and contemporary elements, resulting in a garment that carries the weight of Western sartorial traditions while belonging firmly in the present. Its striking collar has a dramatic curved point shape, most likely inspired by early 20th century shirting. The collar's tips have buttonholes to secure them to the front, resulting in a peculiar overlapped look that would complement a narrow tie. The sleeves feature detachable french cuffs that add to the shirt's unconventional proportions. The back is finished with a single box pleat.
The fabric is a finely woven cotton poplin with a pinstripe pattern of black and brown threads. Light and breathable, it complements the shirt's slightly oversize silhouette, with semi-fitted shoulders and a wider torso. Ivory mother-of-pearl buttons complete the piece.
