It’s always exciting to have an opportunity to feature Vogue Nippon creative director and Editor-At-Large Anna Dello Russo on PurseBlog or TalkShoes. Her street style is somewhat legendary, and the highly eclectic ensemble that she recently donned at the Marni Fall 2014 show in her hometown of Milan is right on par with what Anna usually throws down at runway shows.

After watching Prada Fall 2014 in Milan (via livestream, of course), it was clear that Miuccia had wedges on her mind. Unlike the very colorful (and not necessarily in a good way) spring shoes, this collection has a lot more wearability and the colors are much more muted.

Prada is known for breaking fashion boundaries, and this visually evocative collection did just that. Read More…

Not only am I a noted Prada fangirl, but I’m a lover of purposefully ugly shoes. (Those two things are related, probably.) In addition, I adore Prada’s weird face-painted runway bags, which requires both a really open mind and a willingness to wear things that other people think are really stupid. I should be the perfect consumer for the Prada Asymmetric Suede Sandals, which just arrived for pre-order at Neiman Marcus, but I am not. Read More…

Sometimes, you have to take a trip to visit a pair of shoes. About a month ago, I ventured down to Bergdorfs with my friend JM in pursuit of the Prada Metallic Bow Pumps, only to find that the store didn’t carry them. We checked at the Prada flagship down the block; no dice. This pair was made specifically for department stores, we found out, so we walked several more blocks through throngs of tourists to get to Saks. Read More…

When I think Prada shoes, the first things that come to mind is chunky, thick-soled and heavy. To be honest, a lot of the time I’ll completely skip over the Prada shoe sections while shopping online because the majority of them just aren’t my style. That’s not to say they don’t have beautiful shoes – Amanda, on the other hand, is a big fan of all things Miuccia. Read More…

It’s no secret we’ve been crazy for metallics all season long, and apparently we’re not alone. The new Prada Fall 2013 collection is full of silver metallics and loads of black. The silouhettes range from ultra-feminine heels to chunky combat boots and oxfords, which I’m convinced were made specifically for Amanda. Normally, when it comes to fall collections, I usually have a pretty easy time picking out my favorites from each designer, but the more I scrolled through Prada’s, the more I liked them all.

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.

Here’s hot mama Sienna Miller, pushing around her little girl Marlowe in NYC with fiance and fellow British actor Tom Sturridge, who was starring in the Broadway play Orphans with Alec Baldwin until it closed about a week ago. Sienna is wearing a pair of eye-popping silver and pink Prada Bow Flat Sandals. A different version of these satin and leather sandals is currently on sale for $389 (down from $650) at Barneys.
