Someones Not Getting a New Years Present

I was doing so good. I had finally picked out the gifts my family was getting for New Years (I’m Russian Jew, so I not only have to shop 8 magical days, but New Year’s, a day of the year folks from the motherland exchange gifts to ensure they start of 2013 with new shit), and then, out of nowhere, Prada throws me a curveball with the release of smoking slippers that are currently trending higher than “family obligations” in mental social feed… I might need  a new credit card.

Church’s Sole Just Got More Flexible

Ooh boys, we found a bendy one for you. You like ‘em flexible, but you’re used to working for it. In your typical dress shoes, the soles are stiff (maybe that explains the abundance of awful dancers in the male sphere). So one of England’s oldest shoe companies, Church’s (est. 1873, taken over by Prada in ’99) has taken a tip from Dr. Martens with Goodyear Welted soles. But they’ve added their own method of flexing the outer sole. With ball-of-the-foot ribbing and a special oiling process, this formal shoe is ready for a run.

Oh Miu Miu, Prada‘s gone all 90′s sketch flower on us.

There were some interesting highs, and some definite lows of this Prada season. What do you think?

W8, We Just Found Out WTF Zebra Katz is Wearing… and it’s Not Rick Owens

You were right. It’s Prada. The florals, not the C-word hat, in the new music video W8WTF are unmistakably Miuccia. Zebra Katz enlisted stylist Aline Pimentel to make “everything look expensive” while incorporating leather and floral patterns. Since you can’t find a floral richer than Prada, she went to two young NYC independent designers for all the rest: cheeky hats and a lot of bespoke leather. Because Rick Owens would be too expected.

FILM: Miu Miu Preps the Power Bitch for the EOD

Miuccia Prada is kicking off next week’s Venice Film Festival with “Women’s Tales”, four short films by fearsome female directors Zoe Cassavetes, Lucrecia Martel, Giada Colagrande and Massy Tadjedin. Watch the trailer that’ll make you want to skip out of work (at 8PM, werq), throw on your tallest, most whimsical Miu Mius and paint the town pretty.

The Great Gatsby Costumes Designed by Miuccia Prada

The 1920′s were a glamorous era before the tragedy of The Great Depression ensued. Famous for large fur stoles, sequins, fringed frocks, and vintage flapper style, the 20′s had a unique style that was embodied in the film adaptation of the novel The Great Gatsby directed by Baz Luhrmann. For the film, designer Miuccia Prada gathered looks from 40 years of the Prada and Miu Miu archives.
