For those who have everything: Real Fantasies collection from Prada

The slingback wedges in Prada's new collection make a winking reference to the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado and various James Dean–era hot rods.

Golden-era Detroit is making a surprise comeback in the world of high fashion. The slingback wedges in the new Real Fantasies collection from Prada make a winking reference to the 1959 Cadillac Eldorado and various James Dean–era hot rods. Those midcentury street machines drew inspiration, of course, from the jet and space industries, packaging rocket thrust for the masses. A shoe can’t take us back in time to those heady days, but this one “drives masculine midcentury forces to feminine new heights.” Its “hood ornament”—set just above the toes—is “a crystal-encrusted rose in full bloom.”
