Prada’s Inspiration from 1950s American Cars

Sometimes I am missing really impressive news on media! Actually, I felt guilty for missing this amazing and interesting news from Prada!

Prada revealed this season’s shoes collection. Actually, there is nothing wrong with this and I am not supposed to mention this on a car blog. However, Prada is inspired by American cars from 1950s! Huge, covered with lots of chrome, extreme soft suspension with no handling at all, petrol consumption more than a jumbo jet and etc. Don’t worry, these high heels do not consume any petrol but they may need parking sensor while walking, thanks to sharp edges and long wings! On the other hand, these heels may offer very pleasant journey, sorry walking, as they are inspired by 1950s American cars.

From design perspective, they made an amazing job while transforming the design elements from cars to shoes. I salute them! However, I don’t understand why they ignored or skipped the European cars during 1950s! Jaguar, Aston Martin, Mercedes, Bentley, Maserati, Ferrari, Fiat and many others. They have amazing designs, they look perfect from every angle and nothing is exaggerated like American cars at those times. Especially, the Italian brands were amazing! And Prada is an Italian brand, I really don’t know why they ignored the European cars and jump into American cars.

I hope they won’t reveal a collection that is inspired by 1980s Jeep Cherokee :)

Still, amazing job! Well done Prada.
