Prada loafers, because they have earned a place in the fashion Hall of Fame

Prada moccasins, the object of desire

In 2020, 90s style cultrans, including Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber, had to rethink their neo-grunge looks due to certain preppy loafers from Prada. After obtaining the It-girl imprimatur, these flat shoes were worn by everyone: fashion editors, influencers (from Chiara Ferragni to Pernille Teisbaek) and top models. Prada’s loafers debuted as a trendy accessory, and have earned a place in the hall of fame of fashion. In other words, I’m here to stay.

Why is everyone so eager to laze around with these chunky soles? The moccasin in brushed leather with rounded toe, with chunky rubber sole and the symbolic triangle enamel plaque on the front is a refined reinterpretation of the combat boots that have reigned in past seasons, and is in line with the back-to-school atmosphere of the season.

If the line takes inspiration from the retro loafers, the preppy allure and the important volumes come the moccasins with character and contemporary suggestions, thus merging past and present, the skilful know-how of the Milanese fashion house and the symbolic triangle, which appeared for the first time on the trunks made by Mario Prada in 1913.

Prada moccasins, style inspirations

So far, celebs’ interpretation of Prada loafers has been less scholastic and more eclectic. Hailey Bieber styled them with white socks, Levi’s pants and a leather Nour Hammer Gotham coat. Bella Hadid in baggy jeans and a vintage leather vest, Chiara Ferragni in flared trousers and a leather coat, while the Danish influencer Pernille Teisbaek in Pangaia tracksuits and Prada suits. A scholar might deduce that this is precisely the charm of Prada’s cult footwear: there is a new-school approach, with an “adult” effect, in wearing these super shiny and preppy loafers. Try it also with the fake miniskirt, always Prada, thus becoming a designer fashion combo with great effect.
