If these Prada Mary Jane boots creep you out too much to wear, you could always throw fishnets and a lampshade over them a la “A Christmas Story.” Something tells me that will be the fate of all the pairs of these $1,500 boots. [Racked] … READ MORE »

Haven’t you always wanted to look like a Matt Groening character? We thought so. And so does Prada’s shoe designer, apparently, who has whipped up these terrifying, cartoonish, Marge Simpson-esque shoe boots for your shoe-obsessed pleasure. [Shoelust] … READ MORE »

I have quite a shoe fetish, and whenever I see shoes I like, I automatically begin to style them (in my imagination) with my own clothes. That’s what happened when I saw these Prada spring 2011 shoes. I thought I could wear them with black skinny jeans or a pair of white-washed, distressed jeans. And… READ MORE »

We’re reluctant to admit it out loud, but isn’t the point of wearing designer glasses to wear designer glasses and feel the smug satisfaction of your status logo beaming from the corners of your eyes? Prada has just released customizable sunglasses so that the wearer can choose two letters to show off. This would then… READ MORE »

When I saw the first few seconds of Prada’s latest fashion film, I thought, Hm, they’ve animated a runway show. How dull.

Rumor has it (again) that Karl Lagerfeld will retire from Chanel in 2012 and that he’ll “stage a massive, never-before-seen, no-expense-spared farewell.” [Fashionologie]

High-heeled sneakers are the hideous trend that just won’t end. These Prada shoes with 3 3/4″ rubber wedge heels are made in Italy, cost $420, and won’t ever be worn by the likes of us. [Bergdorf Goodman] … READ MORE »

Studs have been going strong for a while now, but lately we’ve noticed some innovation on the trend. Instead of sticking with classic pyramid nailheads, big-time labels like Prada and Givenchy are embellishing apparel and accessories with ornaments of different shapes. Carey Mulligan’s Prada Oscar gown had tiny scissors, utensils, and washers sewn in among… READ MORE »

We all knew the day was coming when Miuccia Prada would try to corner more than just the designer handbag market. Now, it seems, she’s going after the written word. THE PRADALPHABET, a collaboration between Prada and M/M Paris, has arrived to kick the Times New Roman font’s butt. It will be released in May… READ MORE »

Apparently, the devil does wear Prada, and his name is Davide Sesia. The CEO of the high-fashion line is now dealing with a lawsuit in which an employee claims she and over a dozen others in the Japan office were discriminated against because of their looks. Rina Bovrisse, the accusing staffer, said that Sesia told… READ MORE »

“I wanted to take ruffles, frills, neat little ladylike silhouettes, all those clichés that women can’t seem to escape from, and do something different with them. When I used to be a feminist, I never dreamed that parameters of female beauty would actually get narrower.” [Used to be a feminist?] “Ah yes. Nowadays there is… READ MORE »

Fashion editors swooned over the lingerie trend on the runways. I’ll admit, I loved it too. A hint of sexiness is a great look — one which certain girls can pull off. But what I’ve recently learned is that when that particular trend made its way into reality, it simply doesn’t work. Chloe Sevigny just… READ MORE »

French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld is my mom’s age. So why in God’s name is she going pantsless in lace tights and hooker boots, forcing us to be sick all over the place? I don’t care what people say about age being just a number, 55 is far too high a number for this Lady… READ MORE »

While generally reserved for strippers, Lucite heels might break into the mainstream thanks to their presence on the Prada runway and in Maison Martin Margiela’s collection. But the ones we’ve seen are pricey — to the tune of a grand and more — and some would say they still look cheap.

So, if… READ MORE »

Crazy shoes. They’re all the rage! Last week, we admired Rodarte’s urban glamazon heels that could have been made from leftover parts found at the local mechanic’s. Yesterday in Milan, Miuccia Prada debuted a series of Lucite and plastic chandelier shoes with a rainbow of heel colors and swinging crystals. Equipped with what looks to… READ MORE »
