Both are from the 2000s. Both had a huge following. Now, they’ve been resurrected because their fan base didn’t die; it just got bigger.


1. Prada’s Flame Sandals

S/S’12 was a good year for Miuccia Prada: She was the first to introduce It shoes when shoes were still, well, just footwear. The Flame (inspired by ’50s cars, with cartoonish flames on its heel), was an instant hit, and still highly sought after by collectors. Revived this season, the new flames come in vibrant neons or neutrals. They are no longer stiletto heels, but are now wedges, at $1,940 a pair.


2. Christian Dior’s Saddle Bag

Introduced in S/S’00 by John Galliano, it was a most-wanted Carrie Bradshaw bestie in Sex and the City. After five years, it disappeared – but it’s back. Maybe Dior’s current creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, noticed “vintage” Saddles getting snapped up online. They are in three styles for F/W’18: calfskin, oblique canvas, or embroidered with beads, patchwork or fringes. Sizes: mini or regular. From $3,300 for a mini oblique canvas to $8,500 for the patchwork. Separate cross-body canvas straps are available.
