alexander-mcqueen-metal-plated-platforms.jpgThe shoes from Alexander McQueen A/W 11 caused a ripple of excitement when they first appeared on the Paris runway, and there is no doubt that Sarah Burton's hard-hitting designs have influenced the infatuation with fetish that has dominated the scene since.

Now, many of the styles we saw in the show are appearing in high end stores, and we spotted these white metal-plated platforms over at Net-a-Porter today. 

A curious mix of tough industrial styling and floaty, chiffony flowers, these are classic McQueen: statement-making pieces with a true darkness about them. We look forward to seeing which celebrities dare to wear this beautiful yet difficult style.
