Prada’s Spin On Spring
If you’ve ever dreamed of having the wings on Greek God Hermes’ feet – then you’ll surely want to snap up Prada’s Spring 2012 collection of transportation-as-footwear accessories.
*Screech! Wait a second. Is that a… fender? Yep. And while they won’t get you into the office any quicker, Prada’s 50′s-inspired hotrod stilettos will certainly get you there in style. Even the notoriously unamused NYT fashion critic Cathy Horyn praised the collection for it’s “machismo” against a season of “tired ’20s frocks.”
And let’s not forget about the equally quirky matching handbags, featuring tiny tail lights and retro-licious licks of flame and embroidered roses. If Miu Miu’s glitter heels and now Prada’s car-inspired stilettos are any indication of where fashion is heading, then we can expect a little more whimsy and a little less why-so-serious.
