Photos from the latest Prada Fall 2009 campaign shot by Hedi Slimane have just surfaced, and the ads are quickly accomplishing what they set out to do: to make me feel painfully inadequate about the contents of my wardrobe.
Miuccia's jackets and cardigans bedecked with the tiny round studs are almost quaint, they invite you to gently run your fingertips over them like you would a finely embroidered eyelet fabric, or a precious lace.
It's a different way of utilizing studs, unlike the brash and trashy stud frenzy that currently prevails.
To add insult to injury, Daniel from ModeMan already has a pair of those sublimely studded oxfords from the same collection. Lucky, lucky fellow!
Seeing the black in action, it seems that I'm surprisingly being more drawn towards the same style in cordovan. I like how the reddish leather plays against the golden studs.
Does anybody know how much these shoes retail for?
