The "IT" handbag has been replaced by the "IT" shoe. Gladiators were hot, but towering, decorated and strappy platforms are an even bigger kick in the aggressive-shoe trends.

The sexy Prada shoes are not a new phenomenon. It's been on the runways for all seasons, apparently, its because of the rocker-femme kind of mood that's coming back into fashion.
Feel the Italian spirit...
