FashionLooks We ♥: Patterned Platforms

 
Now that sandal season is upon us, allow me to introduce my latest and greatest obsession: the patterned platform.
 


Prada hit the nail on the head last spring (below), and Charlotte Olympia followed suit this year (above), with her simplicity up top and whimsical prints below. How cute is that sheet music!



Now, we’ve been acquiring quite the collection here at Lulus, so just try and resist the printiest platforms of all!

FashionTrend Alert: Phantom Heels

Chunky, stiletto, cone, kitten… I thought we’d seen it all. Until, of course, there was nothing at all to see! The heelless platform, or phantom heel as I’ve affectionately come to call it, is no longer a magical foot-piece reserved for the theatrical likes of Lady Gaga or Nicki Minaj. The cool curved back has been popping up all over, from red carpet to sidewalk, and not just as a crazy Halloween gag. The phantom heel has made it mainstream, so stock up on a pair of your own!
I’m pretty sure Daphne Guinness was born in these….


If you’re looking for real world inspiration, then check out Eteclea. This girl rocks the phantoms like it’s nothing.

FashionPrada Takes High Fashion to the Highway

 
 I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been to a few hot rod shows in my day, so when I saw Prada’s Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection, the little girl in the rumble seat inside me let out a little squeal of glee. Finally, fashion that my dad might even appreciate….
 
 
 
All the initial hype I read was totally shoe-centric, and they deserve it, but hello! Look at how great everything is!
 
 
I love how she incorporated the classic car motif in so many ways, yet makes the traditionally masculine concept seem so feminine and sweet. Think muscle car-meets-pin-up, with a little fifties housewife mixed in. Prints, micro prints, racing stripes, flames, and full-on hot rod decals and embroidery… Oh my! And the color palette! Who wants to hop in my ’57 Chevy with me and speed on down to the malt shop? (No, I don’t actually have a ’57 Chevy, or know where you’d find a malt shop nowadays).
 
 
But really, let’s get back to the shoes, am I right? Spoilers, wings, chrome, flames, and even tail lights, plus the occasional bow or jewels? I could gush for hours.
