Designer Olivier Theyskens has been seen lolling about Paris. He’s unemployed, supposedly fired from Nina Ricci after showing his last goth collection (Fall ‘09), replete with Elvira collars and fitted noir.

An informal survey was conducted of who actually dared to wear his sky high platforms, seen above and below. Our good witch version of Cruella, Daphne Guinness, wears them a lot, always in black. And Martin Cohn– a muse for designers Frank Tell and threeASFOUR– currently owns a couple pairs in black and red. He was sen wearing his black ones out with Tell’s leather leggings to the Half Gallery a couple weeks ago. “They’re so comfortable!” He says, balancing back and forth.

Although these shoes don’t look comfy, I guess I has to take his word for it. I can’t lie, I would love to start seeing women wearing these platforms.
