Kiss me, Prada! Their latest statement-making patterns prove that lips – and lipstick – can look shockingly hip. Irreverent? Absolutely. Exciting? Yes, indeed. Unexpected? Well, that’s almost always to be expected from Miuccia.
With a respective abstract print and floral motif, the Lips satchel and Lipstick shoulder bag, equally colorful and frisky, might bring to mind pieces of modern American Pop art from the mid-1950s. They’re already as instantly recognizable as some of those icon-inspired works of art; actually, they might rapidly reach some small-scale “icon” status of their own. Be still, all street-style blogger hearts. This is the kind of whimsical charm that gets snapped (and posted and snapped some more). Just make sure you style these with your own specific spin – and don’t forget to wear your favorite shade of lipstick. You wouldn’t want your bag to project more mouthy personality than you do. Prada saffiano print Lips satchel bag, $2,500, and Lipstick shoulder bag, $2,280, both available for pre-order at Neiman Marcus (expect shipping by October 7th).
Wear with: Capitalize on the artsy flair with Stella McCartney’s ribbed wool and silk-blend skirt, finished with a flippy, asymmetric hemline. On NET-A-PORTER for $1,220.
