Miuccia Prada is not one to promote understated fashion, and it wasn’t any different with her Men’s Footwear and Accessories for S/S 12. With Golf apparel as a recurring theme, this trend trickled down to the model’s shoes creating kilted cleats in pastel patent color blocking with nylon mesh detailing. More eccentric styles took embellishment to the next level, adding pearlized studs and metal casing rhinestones atop the already flashy oxford. Simpler styles include a slip-on loafer with contrast leather and rubber outsole, and a gorgeous mid-calf cowboy boot with contrast white piping. If that isn’t enough brilliance, check out the playful embroidered kiltie keychain which has already made my holiday list. Leave it to Ms. Prada to deliver eye-catching freshness season after season. - Jenn Tello
