Miuccia Missing, Karl Questioned.

So yesterday I wrote a post about the Prada pre-fall, and it mysteriously disappeared! I’m not blaming anyone, but I have it on good authority that a certain notoriously jealous and high-collared whackadoo whose name may or may not rhyme with Snarl Globberfeld got so mad when he found out La Miuccia got to outfit the actual PRINCE OF DARKNESS he bit his pet marmoset and had to take to his bed for a week.

The post went a little something like this “blah blah blah concept of pre-fall blah blah blah fry a chicken on a sidewalk blah blah Miuccia Prada is a goddess” and then Miuccia Prada Ruffle Heelsomething about Neiman Marcus and probably a self-deprecating bit about my inability to maintain healthy human relationships because I’m a fundamentally empty person with $20,000 worth of shoes that hurt my feet and a gaping void in my soul.

or, um, you know, something.

Anyhoodle, what I wanted you to do was check out these little delicately ruffled two-piece from Prada’s pre-fall collection. They’re available now and gives just that little something extra to a pair of basic black sandals.

I love the sandals and you’d probably get a ton of wear out of them but personally I’m holding out for La Maestra’s real Fall/Winter goodness.

These over-the-top darlings have been in my stylebook since February and I know the moment I saw them that they –especially the ones with the big sculptural ruffles– are going to be all over the darn place in just a few months.

    I knew there was a reason I heart you!!! You have been in my shoe closet and my soul!

    Karl Lagerfeld is actually my arch-nemesis.

    Is it just me or is the back of the black one (click on the image to see the rear view) definitively um…how to put this delicately….yonnic? Not that that would stop me from wearing them of course because they’re still gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

    I love the Fins – sort of your own Chrysler Buildings for shoes.

    The shoes on the left, the mere sight of them gave the Annalucia the shooting pains up the backs of the legs. They appear to be so designed that one may not even stand upright while wearing them. She devoutly hopes that this is a mere trick of the photography.

    I adore the black ones but the others? How to phrase this delicately? Hmm…they are hideous. Recoil from the keyboard hideous.
