Besides The LBD, the tweed jacket, the quilted handbag, Coco Chanel made sure she had a complete top-to-toe look for her signature items and this time we’re talking about shoes. Two-toned shoes, to be exact. Although not as widely popular as the rest, the two-toned heels carries an equally as significant background, with history dating back to 1957.
Coco Chanel herself has said that, “they are the height of elegance” and we’re glad that Karl Lagerfeld has kept them alive till now, in Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2015/16 ready to wear collection. “The Sligback has become the most modern shoe and it makes the legs look beautiful”. The shoe blends in with every look and effortlessly going from day to night, reiterating Gabrielle Chanel’s vision of leaving in the morning with a beige and black, going for lunch in beige and black and partying in beige and black. “We’re dressed from morning to night!”
Each step of creating the shoe is meticulous and elaborate, from the construction to the materials, keeping in line with the House’s standards of quality and craftsmanship.
