Who doesn't love a sneak peek? Tuleste Market sent us over a preview sketch of their collaboration with Ruffian to be revealed at their runway show on Friday. The shoe, called Smoke & Mirrors, will retail for $395, and it looks like an "f-me pump" if there ever was one. Tuleste Market's footwear launched to the trade at Compass this past fall and will start shipping to select retailers soon. Can't wait to see it in the flesh.

For those of you waiting, anxiously and breathlessly, for the arrival of Prada's monkey-riffic Spring 2011 collection, sorry—you're going to have to go to Milan with stripes, and only stripes. According to a lovely sales associate at the Fifth Avenue Prada boutique, Spring merch is still en route...and while there is one striped pair of open-toe Mary Janes, the real Spring 2011 shoe—the espadrille wedge oxford—hasn't arrived. And when it does, the sole will be less clunky than the runway style. Alas! Just get it here!

Our athletics expert Adam Brecht  is always looking for new ways to compare sports and fashion.

"When the weather turns cold, there are only two things to do: ski or stay inside and...focus on Fashion Week!  If you've received no Fashion Week invites -- I'm just saying hypothetically -- then head out of town to the slopes!  You'll look great -- and discover similar features in the skiing and garment worlds:


Skiing: Long ride to the top. Fast, blurred trip to the bottom. Repeat right away.

Fashion: Long ride to the top. Fast, blurred trip to the bottom. Repeat every 10 years.


Skiing: Wax your Rossignols.

Fashion: Wax your particulars.


Skiing: The sight of snow makes you smile and breathe.

Fashion: The sight of snow makes you snap and seethe.


Skiing: Stuck on the lift with college kids on leave.

Fashion: Stuck in the lift with 10 wigs and a weave.


Skiing: Chalet apres-ski with starlight, black turtlenecks and a casted leg.

Fashion: Chic apres-show with the stars and cast of Black Swan.


Until next time!"
