kermit tesoro is a rising fashion design talent from the philippines who displayed his latest collection which feature among other designs, a pair of skull heels. the shoes are an alabaster finish that integrates a small skull into the heel. the shoes come in variety of styles from straps to suede. this unusual motif was carried throughout the collection as demonstrated by the designs which used milled foam, bent wire or rubber tubing. the full collection was quite avant-garde despite its mostly monotone colour palette.

  • If a skull is a death symbol, it is correctly used to indicate the destruction of a female’s foot with dead-ugly and uncomfortable design.

    Gersil N. Kay, IESNA says:
  • I can’t belive how ugly these clothes are. Every little detail under the clothes is exposed. They are obviously not lined. The clothes are ill fitting and the shoes look like they used a horses hoof to fit it.

    RIP OFF!

    Becca says:
  • Spaghetty, mouse & foam on killer heels! Nevertheless, interesting surfaces for fashion!

    ST says:
  • I LOVE THIS! Fashion is theater, and theater at its best produces an immediate visceral response. The very strong reactions above single the success of his work, and should anyone chose to wear these pieces in public, they becomes their own little drama. Hideous glamour.

    CraxiePixie says:
  • Reminds me a lot of her of Iris van Herpen, though her execution and exquisite use of materials outshines this collection.

    Frank Verkade says:
  • this is ugly

    muchacha says:
  • These designs are awesome! he really is a talented designer.

    precilla , says:
  • it is raw. it is different. it is innovative. it is beautiful

    LMJ says:
  • Love it. Haters can go tell their girlfriends to buy converse all-stars.

    NR says:
  • seriously, i only like the heels.
