Last year (and almost exactly a year ago) I went nuts over the Alexander McQueen Armadillo Shoe Ornament, which quickly sold out. This year, the Met Museum celebrates one of the most eye-catching shoes from S/S12 in the form of the Prada Flame Shoe Ornament, which was just launched to commemorate the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibition.
Priced at USD30 a pop, each cast resin, hand painted, limited edition (and might I add highly collectible) ornament measures almost 11 cm in height, making it a really cool desk ornament/paper weight, or you could hang it in your car’s rear view mirror.
Or you could get this as a gift for your girlfriend because you can’t afford the real ones right now. And it won’t even matter, because it’s the thought that counts.
And I’m getting a pair right now. Use promo code ‘K274‘ to enjoy 20% off your total purchase, and yes, they do ship internationally.
