There's been a fair amount of fuss made along the way about the outrageousness and originality of the platforms shown in Olivier Theyskens' final collection for Nina Ricci for Fall 2009, and in Alexander McQueen's Spring 2010 collection. Meanwhile, a fellow named Jochen Kronier has been quietly designing and custom-making fabulously outrageous and original platform shoes and boots in his various studios since 1994. The following is my small way of telling a bit more of the world about Herr Kronier's amazing designs... (And premiering a new series at MildredLovesYou.com while doing so...)
