1990s PRADA sandals WEDGES 9 9.5 us | new spring
Fun and absolutely essential 1990's Prada platform sandals! Done in a mustard foulard fabric with peep toe, ankle straps and rubber sole. Made in Italy.
Likely from Prada's "Pretty Ugly" collection in 1996. Vogue writes " Long before Silicon Valley gave the green light to the geek, Miuccia Prada did. Her Spring 1996 show featured colors that hadn’t been considered attractive since the seventies—avocado greens, sludge browns. Then there were the mixed prints, some with a hand-drawn look, which were intended to clash. Everything was worn with clunky, awkward sandals, which, though quickly taken up by fashion folk, were the polar opposite of the sexy follow-me shoes that were otherwise so popular in the nineties. Which was exactly the point: Prada has made a career of challenging conventional, Barbie-perfect standards of beauty by exploring what she’s called “the good taste of bad taste.”
