Hands down, Prada has designed my favorite line for spring. The brand’s throwback designs infuse touches of Cadillac cars and flames reminiscent of the movie Grease. Prada’s shoes have wowed me and I can’t stop thinking about the entire collection. In fact, if someone threw me $20,000 just for funsies, I might spend it all in one place, and that place is Prada.
I have held back posting about this collection from a purely selfish standpoint, I practically hoarded all Prada items in my saved browser tabs so I could stare at them daily and figure out how to buy them all. The shoes may very well be the best part of the offerings and this is largely because of their flame detail and tail lights. No seriously, you read that right – flames and tail lights. While it sounds entirely kitschy, Prada has pulled this off so amazingly I feel like I am jumping for fashion joy.
The Prada Flame Wedge Sandals may not be my favorite shoe from the line, but when I was perusing Eleni’s cookie store in Chelsea Market this week I realized I am not the only person having a full-blown Prada love affair.
Does this cookie not look amazing? Clearly modeled after a pair of Prada Spring ’12 shoes, the cookie looked just like its actual shoe counterpart and tasted amazing as well. The wedge sandal is comprised of a black, red, and white patent leather flame cutout detail. The heel is 4.5″ which is completely wearable while still able to give you the high heel look. I expect to see these shoes worn by fashionistas everywhere. And if you can’t wear it, eat it (shop Eleni’s cookies). Buy the Prada Flame Wedge Sandals for $1,100 via Neiman Marcus.
