Taking place in a modern night club in Paris, Chanel Haute Couture Spring 2014 models wore sneakers, or “bespoke shoes,” as the brand refers to them, to trot down the runway, and by Tuesday morning, the shoes were the talk of couture week. Clashing feminine and flirty with comfortable athleticism, Karl Lagerfeld created bespoke shoes to fit every look in his girlish collection. All sixty-three looks, to be exact. Each bespoke shoe was adorned with lace, tweed, and pearls; very Chanel-esque, of course. It’s strange to see such opulent and luxurious garments paired with sneakers, however this mix-up is just what Lagerfeld does best. His keen understanding for what defines haute couture, while still adapting to the fast-paced, trend-driven world of fashion, is exactly what makes his collections so revolutionary. At the show, some models even added a hop and skip to their steps, because when you wear comfortable footwear with haute couture, anything is possible.
