A lady at net-a-porter's call center told me it is pronounced moo-ey moo-ey but without too much emphasis on the oo's. So more like mu-ay mu-ay.

LMFAO!

I could be totally wrong, but I'm pretty sure her name is pronounced Mew-chya Prada.. so I think Miu Miu is pronounced like Mew-Mew. Haha, hope that helps.

It is pronounced mew-mew. Great question. Here is a great place to find out how alot of the European designers names are pronounced. I found this when I wanted to order some CL shoes and didn't want to sound like an idiot (I probably did anyway though), hope it helps:

It's Mew Mew. I've called Barneys and the Miu Miu store and they've all pronounced it that way. I use to think it was Moo-wee Moo-wee...they guy at Barneys laughed at me :s

It's italian. Everywhere I've been here in Europe they say Mi-ou Mi-ou (Two syllables per "Miu", so no myu myu or mew mew, there's a slight difference), which is the proper italian pronounciation.

Mi-ou Mi-ou Its tough trying to describe how something sounds because people pronounce things differently.

Glad someone asked. I just got some rocking boots from uh, Miu Miu and did not want to have anyone ask what designer they were.
