PRADA’s brought out a badass shoe collection, which one doesn’t necesarrily find attractive from the first sight for reasons of unbeleivable casuality, with which ugliness is combined with classicism, but which one just has to love – once again.
From above,”Levitate”-shoes look like all the known classics : Plain Toe Derby, Penny Loafer, Wingtip and Chelsea Boots. Looked at from aside, one sees an”Air Sole” reminiscent of NIKE AIR MAX – an extremely ugly and therefore, totally great in its brutal aestheticlash, air-cushion sole.
That would really be a stroke of bad luck (or that of a NIKE copyright-lawsuit) if this shoe series are not seen on various trendsetting feet very soon.
One can order PRADA “Levitate”-Schuhe for 600,- Euro per pair at Nordstrom, by the way.
The ‘Chuck Taylor’ by CONVERSE is the equivalent of the shoe-world, to what Andy Warhol is for Pop Art:
Everybody knows them, nearly everybody has them at home (if not the original, then at least one of the many replicas), many adore them and many disguise them – probably also because of their genius simplicity.
Therefore it is just reasonable, that CONVERSE has combined both icons to one maximal pop-consensus-product: the ‘Chuck Taylor’ is available from now with Warhol’s famous ‘Campbell’s Soup’-print in different colour, as hi- and low-top.
It is not really pretty and it is not really preferable to wear soup on your feet – but who are we, to judge.
The sneakers are available from the 07.02. in selected stores, Converse stores and online at www.converse.de

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
