Walk It Off

— Fri, 27th June 2008 —

Until the end of next week, Prada is taking 45% off everything except luggage and top-shelf shoes. There’s still plenty of lesser shoes and spring/summer ’08, a store clerk tells us.

BEWARE: Even on sale, Prada suits and blazers are a SHIT investment:

Simply put, the proper way to construct a suit is by stitching the “canvas” to the outer fabric. Prada glues these pieces together, which leads to a stiff jacket, and in due time irreparable bubbling up of the fabric from the canvas. If you want to see bubbling for yourself, ask to see a Prada jacket at any resale store in the city. It’s not pretty.
