Mad for Magenta

In Fashion on March 2, 2010 at 8:06 pm

I spotted this photo over at always-inspiring JAK & JIL and was immediately smitten.  Usually the craziest I get with tights is (hold onto your hats!) navy but there’s something so arresting about this magenta/brown combination.

The Prada cutout studded platforms are from the Fall ’09 collection.  Studs, which have been overdone, look fresh when they’re less punk, more art deco. Here they remind me of the lights lining a movie theater aisle.  The perforation suggests a men’s oxford, which would keep them on trend through next fall at least – though truthfully Prada shoes are some of the most timeless out there.  I still wear some from the ’90s.  This particular pair remains elusive; if I find any online you’ll be the first to know.

In the meantime, head over to We Love Colors for fuschia/magenta tights.  Or whatever color your little heart desires, they have them all.
