Terry de Havilland is one of those oldies but goodies - in the seventies, he was a real London shoe fixture - Bianca Jagger and David Bowie were fans, and Jackie O received a pair of his shoes as a gift. By the eighties, his platform styles were phased out, and the designer disappeared for a while. But in 2004, he opened shop in London once again, garnering new fans in Christina Aguilera, Kate Moss, and Sienna Miller. It's taken a few years, but it looks like the de Havilland platforms are starting to make their way across the pond, carrying a remnant of the old seventies excess with them. I have to say, they're pretty extravagant, but I like the retro-modern feel they have to them! A few styles are available at Shopbop, with pricing running from $494-$681.
