While many readers of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein will associate lightning as a key element related to the monster, the book does not say explicitly that it was created during a stormy night.
Regardless, Miuccia Prada incorporates a number of literal references to the gothic horror novel throughout Prada’s Fall ’19 collection that explores themes of freakishness and dark romance.
The following shoes are defined by their lightning bolt heels. Do you prefer them to the chunky crystal heels from the same collection?
