Well fashion usually resurfaces and regurgitates ever now and then, but most of the times it is never as good as the original effort. However, Prada has a different story to tell as it brings back a 50’s Cadillac to the ramp instead. It is out with “hot-off-the-runway” footwear that considers three fashion obsessions: women, heels and cars. The shoes include pumps, sandals and wedges and are graced with high-heeled red stilettos with a “bullet-shaped tail light” and a wedge with “exhaust-pipe flames shooting out the back”. Then there is one shoe with a wedge resembling the “tail fin of a vintage Cadillac”. The shoes sport hot-rod red and racing green hues with a car-paint job feel and feature bejeweled brooches in the place of hood ornaments.
The shoes are a part of a 1950s-inspired spring collection which also features car prints, bandeau tops, pencil skirts and pleated dresses à la Marilyn Monroe, apart from the snazzy footwear. While nothing is being said about cost yet, expect the shoes to be well above the $1,450 per pair mark.
