I Spy With My Little Eye

When I spied Princess Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis wearing velvet criss-cross platforms on Instagram, I thought they were vintage (possibly even borrowed from her mother, Gloria). Cute when paired with socks—I predict that these Prada platforms above will be a favorite of SS18 show-goers…

Blackblue, brown.

  • Love them and am very attracted to the brown velvet. Do you think they can be worn with jeans?

  • Yes! They’d be great with jeans. Not usually my thing, I really love these.

  • Not happy about the post she published on Instagram w/ the homeless woman. I am glad she apologized, however, there are a lot of incredible women out there to be inspired from. Form and function.

  • These shoes immediately screamed “PRADA” to me.

    There are copies of them in the U.K. Night street shops….

  • Love these! First Fall purchase

  • Love these. I have them in navy suede from a couple of seasons ago and they’re incredibly comfortable. I’d like to pick up a velvet pair this fall.

    Kathy, I have Prada’s Mary Jane in the same brown velvet as above. They look fantastic with denim. The color is even better in person. I wear them often as an unexpected replacement for cognac colored leather.

  • I got the brown ones and I love them. I think they’ll be great with blue and white denim jeans all year round in LA, with a cashmere sweater. The brown velvet is scrumptious.
