Prada has been the talk of the fashion world this week, what with her exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Ms. Prada herself co-chairing the star-studded gala that opened it. We already brought you one pair of interesting Prada sandals a few days ago, but now I’d like to talk about another that will probably be more controversial: the Prada Smoking Lips Sandals. Naturally, that makes them perfect for this week’s edition of Fill in the Blank.
This design is particularly appropriate because lips were such a beloved motif of Elsa Schiaparelli, the other subject of the Met’s seasonal exhibit. In my mind, this is a very cool, post-modern piece that will likely be a proud collector’s item some day, just like Prada’s flame shoes, but I’m not sure I’d part with any money to buy it now. What say you? If you want a pair of your own, they can be had via Neiman Marcus for $890.
