For this season Miuccia has taken inspiration from 1950’s American cars and adorned all and sundry with hot rod flames. With Prada’s entire spring/summer 2012 collection based on the american automobile motif, this graphic style is set to be the most iconic of the season.
These flaming peep toe slingbacks in patent leather are the epitome of the style: bright, high shine and infinitely playful. (Cue strong urge to acquire, wear and run around making ‘speedy car' noises.)
Prada also brings us what is, perhaps, a more easy to wear option in these patent sandals. Still high shine, equally bright, and with just enough of the playful graphics to satisfy my (newly found) hot rod flame lust. Although my item of choice has got to be this cream leather clutch. Miuccia, you’ve done it yet again.
With patent edged, appliquéd flames in hot, hot pink, as far as I’m concerned, it does it all. Now all I need is to find a way to justify adding it to my personal collection... Which isn’t actually very hard, as where else could I ever find as perfect an accompaniment to the Trisori hard candy ring, in equally hot pink? I think that might just be mission accomplished.
