Miucca Prada is giving us a really sweet excuse to add a new pair of shoes to our summer wardrobe. Yesterday Miu Miu announced the launch of a capsule shoe collection for Spring 2010, set to hit Miu Miu stores in May.
The collection was inspired by the silhouettes of classic men’s shoes – think loafers, brogues and jazz shoes – and then given a heavy dose of Miucca Prada’s genius and a dash of femininity. They might not have the whimsical appeal of Miu Miu’s swallow-print platforms, but they definitely have that Miu Miu touch.
If you like the androgynous look there are plenty of flats, including a dazzling, cobalt blue brogue and a studded brogue in black or white. If you want to stick with the girly-girl inside of you, look to the patent nude platform or studded, loafer-inspired platform.
Prices for this capsule collection are steep (think upwards of $450) but for a slice of Miu Miu, they are worth it.
