Sock Market Finds Its Footing With Novelty Styles

Socks offer consumers the chance to show off their personality without too much of a fashion risk.

Miuccia Prada’s collection gave several strong accessory proposals for fall. There were glowing fluorescent bags, white rubber boots, lady bags with cartoon robots, small sci-fi sunglasses and heels with bungee-cord details. The range might have been a wink to iconic pieces of past collections, but these were supercharged and about the now, as in the return of the flame shoe done in a neon pink flame sandal style this time. Another key piece, reworked from the Prada lexicon, was a variety of socks, some with the iconic Prada sport red label, others with a knit version of the triangle logo plaque. — Thomas Waller
