New Acquisition - Prada Car-Inspired Shoes

We were very excited to add three new contemporary acquisitions to our collection in April.  We appreciate the generosity of the team at Prada in Milan who donated to us three pairs of the most talked about shoes from their Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.  This collection is described by Prada as being "...based on he juxtaposition between 'sweet' femininity and the motoring universe.  This collection's footwear is also inspired by 1950s luxury cars".



The Prada catalogue describes the design inspiration for these unique shoes:

"Very traditional and feminine styles, such as mules, T-shaped and slingbacks, all symbols of elegance, are reviewed in an ironic light by means of introducing ironic, pop details such as car wings, lights, extra-large bows, flames and chrome plates that look like the American Cadillac cars.

Heels are high and thin, mainly stilettos, but some decorated wedges also show, for a very dynamic effect."

The Bata Shoe Museum is very excited to have these innovative shoes as part of our permanent collection and they can be seen in our B1 foyer between now and May 8th, 2012.

This pair of patent leather sling-back, wedge-heeled shoes features throat decorations of yellow roses framed by blue rhinestones.  The wedge heel is accented by novelty tail-lights and is reminiscent of the rear fins of cars from the 1950s.
These sling-back, wedge-heeled, T-strap sandals show to great effect the bold contrast of red and black which further embellishes the flame motif that is seen in many of the shoes designed by Prada for this season.

This pair of green, black and beige stiletto-heeled shoes features a series of Prada's design elements from this season; the flame motif and novelty tail-lights combine to create an unmistakable automotive reference.

  16. Your blog is very informative. Eating mindfully has been very hard for people these days. It's all because of their busy schedules, work or lack of focus on themselves. As a student I must admit that I have not been eating mindfully but because of this I will start now. It could help me enjoy my food and time alone. Eating mindfully may help me be aware of healthy food and appreciating food.
