Miuccia Prada received rave reviews of her fun and frisky, cat-themed collection that purred down the runways yesterday in Paris. Her unique vision included cats, birds, and naked women unfolding across beautifully sculpted pieces. But as we were all oohing and aahing over the Spring 2010 collection, the company was making a business decision that may affect all us stateside fans. Miu Miu has apparently pulled out of several well-known U.S. department stores following a disagreement over the placement of Miu Miu's popular line of bags. Prada's secondary line seemingly wanted to have their own store within the store, but the retailers preferred the bags to be mixed in with other labels. Without being able to reach a compromise, the Italian brand removed all merchandise from those particular stores. Hopefully, some resolution can be found between the two parties soon so we can all go back to normal, lusting after those decadent Miu Miu bags.
