Basso & Brooke's S/S 09 Collection was bursting with loud collages of patterns dazzled with Japanese inspired embroidery and heavy beading- something that would usually never make me weak in the knees. But I wasn't so much into the intensely colored prints as I was into the artfully carved platform heels designed by Raouda Assaf... seriously I died when I saw these. And I'm still dying.

style crusader said...

Those shoes are outrageous! Love it!

HoneyBunny said...

wow..i'm speechless:D

The Stylish Wanderer said...

AMAZING

discothequechic said...

sheeesh!

I love the idea, but the platform is a bit too much for me, I must say. I'll take shoes over a bag anyday, but I'll leave the stripper shoes to MK. Though maybe I can peel the floral detailing for myself?..

TEXTSTYLES said...

wow. go raouda!
seriously intense
and back-breaking
loves them somethin' fierce!

*bisous*

tres22 said...

These shoes scare me Karla. lol
I don't know about these.
You'd totally break your ankles in these!!

N said...

They are such wearable masterpieces.

I could so picture you wear them though :D You ARE that fierce Karla.

I THINK YOU KNOW HOW TO DRESS YOURSELF, BUT YOU HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA ABOUT FASHION. IT'S JUST NOT IN YOU. SOME PEOPLE GOT IT NATURALLY, LIKE CAMILLE, YOU SIMPLY DON'T.

HEK said...

1: what the f*** is wrong with some people..? Don't care about NEYLA ore other bad comments from people that are just jealous of you.

2: The shoes are to die for!

3: I just saw your american apparel ads, and the pictures are amazing, congratulations:)

Ursula said...

OMG I love the detail in the heels. It really looks like a mini sculpture.

Oh and P.S.:
Some people are just HATERS and need to stop the hating. You are amazing. No matter what ANYONE says.

Alexa said...

great shoes, but sure id be able to walk in them!!

Wowzers, I love 'em!

April said...

Gerry said...

It's like old school John Galliano mated with stripper heels.

vintageveggie said...

just thinking about walking in those makes me want to cry. but they are for real amazing.

esther said...

crazy stuff. and really cool. though i think i would constantly and unnecessarily be putting up my feet so people could get a closer look at the very detailed design. haha.

Ausrine said...

wow I love them, but I'd be terrified to wear them - they seem so fragile!

Miranda said...

haha soo cute and quirky!

i feel like a part time kindergarten teacher/ stripper would wear these :)

The Vogue Society said...

Dangerously High...Love them :D

Carlita said...

Love, love, LOVE the first pair!

abigail said...

pretty shoes... I died a little bit as well
:)

Anonymous said...

Hope they go into production and not stay as catwalk samples...they're gorgeous...

Sunset said...

These are so Karla.

But damn... those heels... I wonder how one could even stand for 10 minutes in these.

Mishka said...

These are gorgeous. If only I could walk in something like that...

Cindy said...

the ultimate stripper heels, i love the little birds. you almost want to buy these just as art or maybe the world's hottest bedroom slippers because you'd not want to ruin them outside.

Anonymous said...

those look fucking retarded. if i saw someone in those i'd trip them on purpose.

Elspeth said...

Karla I think you're great, but seriously these are disgusting. Lovely idea, but the carving-whatever-the-fuck it is looks like some sort of bizarre mutant barnacle growth. Not exactly attractive, if you ask me.

GoldDustGirl said...

love the 5th shoes down from the top, its like pastel candies on the heels.

Andy said...

blurp. original! seriously they're fabulous but not my cup of tee! hihi.
Love

-A.

it's Fashion Fever said...

wow fancy feet indeed :)

P said...

Loving the colours, but hating the carved heel! Seriously, that's what the heels of my shoes look like after my puppy has chewed on them (and it costs me nothing to get them to look that way!). Perhaps we should form a team where I buy platforms on sale, he chews the crap out of them, then I spray them a bright colour and sell them for $1000 - brilliant!

Nita-Karoliina said...

wow, i love that black platform shoe!

Trendy Gourmandise said...

crazy shoes

Tonia said...

My life is not complete without those shoes, even if they'd just be decorating my bookshelf since I'd be scared to break them outside

Kay said...

Normally, not being a big fan of pattern, I'm not the biggest Basso & Brooke fan, but those heels are simply beautiful

Caroline said...

I just found a picture of you in the recent version of the German Glamour. You're featured on a page about trends all over the world. Was quite suprised to find you there.

Sing-me-songs said...

HEEy ! I saw the AA ad and I came here especially to congratulate you...well....CONGRATULATIONS ! You look beautiful in it !

Anika said...

Ahh, those shoes are indeed fab. Love them so much :)

Like jewellery for your feet!

Have a great day :)

LML said...

THESE SHOES ARE DELICIOUS!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I love they idea and the colors but ew on the shape. The platform should be in balance with the heel. Platform should be an inch lower.

Akiri Keetee said...

the shoes are sick!!! in a 10000% positive way... especially the white ones with the flowery platform blew me away!!

btw, wanna add my blog to your links? i already added you a long time ago, you're fab, girl!

yuck, those are hideous.

TrueSilver said...

for this particular pair

http://i261.photobucket.com/albums/ii72/stylebook18/karlaskloset/Picture10-2.png?t=1232407796

i wonder why the designer chose to make the front platform in that particular pattern. All the other front platforms had something that related it to the heel or the shoe, but this one was quite random.

my fav has got to be the black one, although you can't see the texture of the heel well, black always draws me in.

thanks for sharing.

Katie said...

karla, stop it. i'm drooling now!

PS: i love you AA ads! they're super

meghan said...

btw i love the aa ads, why havent you mentioned them on your blog?

whensdinner said...

wow, those are amazing! Great blog :)

The Frocker said...

Basso & Brooke absolutely BLINDED me, but I loved every second of it. My favorite part was the gigantic bobby pins in the models' hair. The heels on these shoes are pretty cool though!

So, these are definitely different...but I just saw some heels on Whitney Port's blog that were unbelievable! I'm sorry, but I don't think that all forward fashion is cute, some is too weird even just to be considered art in my taste.
