No, this is not a pool party or a film still from “Boogie Nights.” It’s true: Lucite, the clear, lovable plastic most closely associated with the 70s or ladies of the night, has made a comeback in high fashion. And we have to admit, there’s something beautiful about that crystal clear platform, that transparent handbag or that second-grade chic jelly sandal. We highlight two brands (Prada and Michael Kors) who are doing lucite in style.
This Prada transparent heel is perfect for summer days. With a velcro closure adding a sporty element, these shoes could double on the tennis court and the dance floor.
Lucite chains add a playful touch to these cool-as-ice Michael Kors handbags ($495).
Michael Kors also rolls out the clear aesthetic with these transparent jelly sandals ($59).
Prada’s see-through handbag is worthy of a sugar plum fairy with whimsical, crystal detailing.
Similarly, these Prada platforms would look right at home on a Russian bride, or, without the curtain of jewels, on an LA socialite.
