17 In Misc


I'm a huge fan of both Miu Miu and Prada, but the last few seasons, Miuccia has taken a path all her own, and I find some of it odd–unexplainable even.  These shoes from yesterday…

One thing came to mind for me…
Trojan helmet
This treatment might make a trojan helmut look ferocious, but I'm not sure it works around your ankles.  I cannot imagine how these shoes could be flattering.  They look overdone to say the least.  I really liked the studding, but thought it translated better in her mens collection.  It will be interesting to see how these shoes look when they hit the sales floor.

I liked the the whole trojan armor inspiration in her dresses and skirts however…

I'm not quite sure where the thigh high wading boots fit in, but I think I might like them…

The leather coats were dreamy and buttery soft–gorgeous!

This suit is incredible…

Lastly, I thought this piece was totally genius!  It would surely become the most versatile piece in your wardrobe….If I could have one thing, this would be it!

    it can be the shoes are just like from the feathers of a peacock or turkey.

    The more I look at the shoes the more I like them. God save me. From the front I love how they look – they remind me of my Alexander mcQueen’s with the ruffles up around the ankles – but on crack. Hmm…

    Margarita–I love you for loving them!! ;-))
    Given time–they could grow on me too. When Miuccia did the spats last spring, I hated them, but now own a pair….judy

    To Freddy’s Mom–You’re so right–they do look like feathers now that you mention it. I didn’t see that at all before. Isn’t it interesting how we all interpret things differently? judy

    i really don’t like that waders-with-diaper-shorts-over-knits look; it is disturbing. the armour dresses are genius, though.

    Judy! I like the thigh-high boots! I couldn’t stop looking at it. It’s actually the sole pair of shoes that I liked in the collection. Heh. And I agree that the poncho-like dress/shirt is very versatile. Definitely wearable. 🙂

    I agree Judy– like the last couple of Prada seasons, I predict these shoes will only hold great appeal for editorial directors. On another note though, I think that you will like Etro’s shoes this season. They kind of remind me of Dries in their tribal notes and colourful stripes, albeit a bit more reserved in their colours.

    For some unknown reasons, the makeup for Prada’s this season is kinda freaking me out. But then, clothes are still as fabulous as ever!
