As a general, all around giant, I typically don’t need to add any extra height and as much as I’m sure I could rock a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti stilettos, they’re not quite my style. Instead I tend to go for a moderate 10 centimetre creeper platform to tip me over the 2m mark.
And I’m not the only one who has been loving the platform of late with this seasons shows showcasing their platform pride. Most notably Marc Jacobs. The shapes and sizes were, shall we say, in the extreme, but there’s no doubt that the styles will filter on down to something a little more wearable (although I’m pretty sure that Gaga will refuse to take hers off after walking the Marc Jacobs runway).
Anyway, to cure my obsession I’ve gathered together some of my favorite platforms from across the world wide web that you can get right now in Shanghai to make sure you’re right on trend, and maybe as tall as me. Plus I’ve thrown some outfit inspiration in for good measure.
