Okay, fine. You’ve worn us down, Miuccia. Long have we maintained, in the face of a rising tide of vocal opposition, that you are a fashion genius and that your intellectual approach to design yields clothes worth talking about and, a season or two later, wind up getting ripped off by other designers. In other words, you have always embodied the phrase, “she doesn’t follow trends; she sets them.”
But girl, we canNOT sign off on this one.

Lo’s (who is her biggest defender) exact words: “Miuccia’s really lost it lately.”
Olivia, we won’t hold this Frankendress against you. We’ve been seduced by the Prada name ourselves.
Those shoes, on the other hand, we lay entirely at your feet (pun totally intended). Actually, they’re kind of fierce, but we’d never have recommended pairing such focus-pullers with an already too-busy outfit.
