The latest news from the world of fashion
When you walk into one of her stores, Miuccia Prada manages to cast a spell. Suddenly, life is not complete wit hout t hat wal lpaper-pr i nt crêpe-de-chine skir t, and you simply
cannot live if you don’t instantly possess t hat marabou-t r immed top you didn’t even know existed five minutes ago. But if Prada’s ‘pretty-ugly’ concoctions don’t quite satisfy all your needs, help is now at hand in the form of the house’s new Made to Order Décolleté range of shoes.
Choose from 18 styles, eight heel heights, a variety of fabrics, and several sole colours, then add your initials, date of birth or lucky number. Bob’s your uncle – or, more fittingly, Miuccia is your fairy god mother. From £510, from Harrods, London SW1, 19-29 May; Prada, Sloane Street, 26 September-3 October; Prada, Bond Street, 4-10 October.
