Beyond the brand’s runway collections, which sometimes veer into the fantastical (and fantastically weird), Prada has long been a reliable purveyor of shoes for women who get things done. Barely anywhere will you find a better collection of fierce, wearable shoes that can fit in with almost any office environment, and Miuccia Prada clearly thinks about what it means to be a modern woman when she crafts her collections. For Prada Pre-Fall 2013, which just landed at Neiman Marcus for pre-order, the resulting shoes are the ultimate mix of femininity and modernity.
The shapes of these shoes are sharp, for lack of a better word, and the graphic, futuristic color palette of black, white and metallic silver is cut only with generous doses of baby pink. Because of the clean look of the shoes – even the bows that adorn many of them are tailored within an inch of their lives – even the pink options never feel too sweet or girlish. Miuccia would never want that, of course – unless it was out of irony. I defy you to find any irony in these shoes, either in our picks below or in the full selection at Neiman Marcus.
