Flatforms – a trend so unique that it gets it’s own newly minted moniker. We can’t get enough of this fresh take on an old favorite. From the original Japanese Geta to elevate the wearer from the filth and wetness of the street…
To Ancient Greek Theatre, where players wore different height platforms to distinguish the importance of the character…
The platform has taken on a multitude of forms and served purposes beyond mere fashion. As we came into the modern age we watched a resurgence of the beloved stack in the 30’s with Ferragamo’s rainbow platform the for the electric, Judy Garland.
Or how the Spice Girls made them famous once again in the 90’s.
Sometimes playful, sometimes chic, sometimes absolutely over the top – the platform has found it’s way back around and we are loving it in all it’s most recent forms. Wooden stacks with perforated leather, exposed zippers with buckles of every size.
Our favorite summer pair as worn by Man Repeller.
Snag a pair or two from our N.Y.L.A. event now through August 27th.
