Does anybody still play with these? 'Cause Miuccia Prada does.
This season Miuccia gender bended by putting her  50s glamazons in wonder dresses, pleated skirts and bandeau tops contrasted with varsity jackets, flames and antique car prints. Ah yes, the car. It adorned almost every look and those flames are why I made the hot wheels connection. Muscle cars, vintage wheels, convertibles etc... 
My two favorite aspects of the show were her accessories: bags bags bags and shoes shoes shoes. Prada bags are superbly covetable as it is but these vintage cars in beautiful supple leather make me forget that they're seasonal and next year they wont be in style. Personally I want the tan bag second from the left.
And the shoes... they make me think burning rubber, broken tail-lights and the country. I'm loving the antique illuminated tail lights that project from the heels and they curling flames as well. I'm predicting that these will be the new hot heels being worn by the editors and stylists and celebs on the front row in the next seasons to come.
I'm inarticulate today and super exhausted after my short field trip to the National Gallery and Library Archives Canada in Ottawa today. Peaaaaacce!
