Couture on Kicks
I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited over any haute couture show as I am over the Chanel Spring 2014 Haute Couture show. I don’t really watch haute couture since it’s very far from my personal style and interest, but when I found out about the sneakers at Chanel last week, I was really happy. Happy to see something different in Haute Couture, a shift towards wearability (because when Chanel does sneakers in a couture show, it’s a shift), always happy to see sneakers. Where I was always convinced that sneakers can be worn with anything, as long as you own that s**t, Lagerfeld now seems to agree with me that even couture dresses and kicks indeed go very well together. And if you can wear couture dresses with sneakers, you can wear anything with sneakers, or at least that’s my logic. It’s the shoe of the year, no doubt about that.
On a slightly different but related note: First images of Riccardo Tisci and Nike’s collaboration are out, and here’s some of what we can expect from what I think will be a match made in heaven, Givenchy’s designer and Nike. Who’s excited? And where can I put myself on a pre-order list?
