Can I be blunt for a moment? I’ve been a little bored of the spring shoe collections so far. It seems as though most designers have lacked footwear inspiration for the season, so they’re mostly just piggybacking on what’s been popular for the past two season. Thankfully, though, the universe has given us Prada Spring 2012 to help us forget all the transitional trend growing pains.
Like any truly good fashion, these shoes, which were inspired by both the auto culture and feminine ideals of the 1950s, are going to be divisive. Miuccia blends them both into outrageously fun shoes with her signature quirky-feminist touch, and even though the number of people willing to wear shoes with vintage tail lights is likely low, I’m going to be so sad if they all get taken off for retail. There’s something to be said for having too much personality.
