For those of you with a penchant for life’s fineries but a strong conscience on conscious consumption, here is your ticket.

Miu Miu, Prada’s little sister brand, have been busy digging around the globe for archive fashion gems and carefully speccing them up with their signature embellishments.

Eighty vintage dresses have been given the Miu Miu upcycling treatment and only available at nine selected stores worldwide — Milan, London, Paris, Moscow, New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo and St. Moritz.
