The Japanese inspired spring collection over at Basso & Brooke brought an array of colorful prints, the highest of the platforms I’ve seen thus far for spring 2009, and obi belts that I’m dying to own. As if to signify that the heels were as tall as trees, birds and flowers were nesting on the heel.
Gucci‘s spring ’09 collection bought forth buckles, metallic trimming, and bold colors on top of platform heels.
Marni Spring 2009 shoes featured interesting striped knee high socks an array of colorful platform shoes.
D&G Spring 2009 got patriotic in red, white, and blue nautical theme clunky platform wedges.
Bottega Veneta incorporated their classic weave pattern into the platform wedge and heels. Compared to other runways, the platforms looks downright walkable.
And finally, Burberry Prorsum picked up the platform trend in autumn colors and ice-pick like heels.
