My first official post on the forthcoming Fall-Winter 2011 Mens Prada collection isn’t going to be about the soft Saffiano luggage pieces, or the printed plaid nylon backpacks and totes. It is, however, going to be about this pair of shoes, one that comes with a side buckle, and another that’s just a loafer.
Both are pretty basic as far as shoes go, just slightly enhanced with a thick rubber sole that every other brand is doing as well these days, so really, there’s nothing to shout about, right?
Wrong. As far as these pairs are concerned, that rich sheen leather in burgundy, paired with grey rubber soles, are a match made in heaven. There is something about the combination that makes it so desirable, so much so that I’m officially putting these in my newly created wish list just for shoes. I don’t have the retail prices for these shoes yet (I do expect them to be in the SGD1000 range), so stay tuned for more updates.
And before I go, let me just honestly state that I wasn’t in love with these when I spotted them on the runway, but this particular combination is sorta growing on me. Rather affordable too, at SGD1040 a pair.
Last but not least, the been-there-done-that shoes, which come in deep rich hues for F/W11. Nothing flashy like the S/S11 pair I own, but great for those who don’t mind some height enhancement in more conservative colours.
