Know how all sorts of fashion types are screaming from the rooftops about the death of the It Bag? Did you believe them? Cause if you did, well, then keep dreaming: Rising from the ashes of the It Bag is the It Shoe! (Even Miuccia Prada says so, and whatever she says goes.) "The obsession with handbags has finished a little now. It feels over. It's about shoes now," says Prada. Adds Michael Lewis, head of design for Kurt Geiger: "For women, shoes are still about fantasy and dressing up — shoes can make you feel something special in a way a bag really can't. Shoes can give you a different persona." Shoes, of course, also give you bloody heels, hammertoes, bunions and collapsed arches — which leaves us wondering what it all really means.
