Tuesday Shoesday : Mad Madras?

Prada has come out with a  ‘Made In India’ foot wear line and some bags too. Excellent!!!! They are  using vegetable dyed Madras goat leather, and the artisans are  weaving these ballerinas for this special line.Wonderful!!!  BUT , it’s not great that they are not very pretty. Yes, they are colourful like India and used techniques like weaving which is a popular technique here right from the Himalayas down to the South of India but they hardly represent!  We are definitely not fans and hope it doesn’t become some big fad just because it’s Prada!

Spotted these heels in the Vogue India this time- over ambitious combination of colours and the design of the shoe? Not safe for work.

What do you guys think? Are we being too harsh?

We will wait and see what are fellow tuesday shoesday experts have to say about them-

  1. I totally agree with you.. hope these don’t become a trend just because its Prada !!!

  2. You’re right – first time I saw them around I was clutching the magazine so hard it almost ripped. Though in the photo you’ve posted I could go with the nude and pink ballerinas – the colors are quite nice 🙂 and think they would look nice in the summer with some great trousers/light-dyed jeans.
