Miniskirts ruled the fall 2014 runways. The short and sweet style landed in the Blumarine, Miu Miu, Anthony Vacarello, and Coach fall collections and each style had its own unique twist. At Blumarine, Anna Molinari served up floral-printed, kimono-inspired minis that she teamed with plush toppers. At Miu Miu, Prada sent quilted minis in soft pastel washes down the runway—to complete the looks, Ms. Prada topped them off with candy-hued parkas. Meanwhile, Anthony Vacarello brought the sex appeal when he crafted a teeny tiny leather mini with a zipper right up the front. To make the skirt appear all the more mini, Vacarello completed the look with an oversize coat and leg-elongating, pointy-toe pumps. Stuart Vever's first collection for the all-American leather goods brand Coach also included a bevy of above-the-knee hems in deep autumnal washes like orange, one of the hottest colors of the season.
