"PRADA" - Trembled blossoms

Found this strange, animated video by Prada and couldn't take our eyes off. It was part of a campaign to launch Pradas new "Trembled blossoms" handbag.

After the incredible success of the Prada Fairy Bag, currently with a long wait list, Prada is trying to score again with their multicolor vibrant bags. The short animation is whimsical and strangely disturbing capturing the viewer from the first second to watch the transition of a cyber-woman’s journey through a magical Prada filled forest. At the end, she meets Pan who shows her how a tropical fish can transform into the stunning Prada Trembled Blossoms Bag. Would it that life was this magical? Love, love, love the sunglasses.

The lush landscape evokes Miuccia Prada's vision blending suggestions of Art Nouveau,Liberty,Audrey Beardsley and Hieronymous Bosch.

In stores, $1,675.00

Cheap Chic with Patricia Field and Payless

Now, for a pairing that actually makes sense. Patricia Field, stylist to SATC, The Devil wears Prada, and lipstick Jungle etc,etc. Sex and the City turned high-end shoe labels like Jimmy Choo and Manolo Blahnik into household words. But not every Sex fan can afford to buy pumps that can come with a four-digit sticker price.

Needless to say, not everyone can afford $700 shoes, she then turned her attention to design a budet firendly collection for Payless Shoes. As long as they dont foam in the rain, we are cool.

Her new Capsule Red Carpet Collection for Payless is finally in stores.

The limited-edition holiday line includes edgy metallic and snakeskin platform shoes and boots and big-screen-worthy clutches. And even if you don’t plan on walking the red carpet any time soon, you can wear shoes that have, with a pair of metallic heels just like the ones Patricia Field wore to this year’s Academy Awards. Prices range from $20 - $35 and you may actually end up feeling guilty.

She claims they are as good as Monolos. “I love some Louboutins and some Manolos,” said Field. “But personally, it kills me to spend that kind of money on a shoe. I’m much happier getting a shoe for less money that looks gorgeous.” Hmm!! I understand, but last time I bought a pair of shoes at Payless (like 10 years ago) and there was a little drizzle, the shoes kinda started to foam at the corners.

Can we trust Payless again? While in Payless, also check out Alice + Olivia for payless. If you do buy the shoes, drop us a line.
