When runway shows roll arounf, the brand I always look forward to is Chanel; the brand produces an interesting combination of elegance and zeitgeist every season. For instance, let’s take a short trip down memory lane. In the last couple of months, we saw the Spring 2014 Haute Couture show, where athletic sneakers were paired with exquisite one-of-a-kind gowns, and for the Fall 2014 collection, how can we forget about the Chanel-themed supermarket? You never know what the brand has in store, and for Chanel Couture Fall 2014, I was surprised to see flip-flops gracing the runway.

The overall theme of the show mixed 18th century detailing with modern silhouettes, like the very luxurious pairs of flip-flops worn on the runway. According to Footwear News, Laurence Dacade, footwear director of the brand, gave even the simplest flip-flop a touch of Chanel luxe with “signature chain straps and ribbon ankle wraps to minimize that aurally inelegant slapping sound.” After all, this is a couture show; the unmistakable sound of flip-flops can’t be heard on a Chanel runway.

    I really like it….think if the tie was made out of something more durable than ribbon! A very soft and supple wide strap of leather perhaps!

    We always look forward to Chanel as well! They always have the best looks and never disappoint! These sandals are shocking, but so feminine and elegant! We are HUGE bow fans too!
