While the Armani Prive spring 2008 couture show featured some titillating high heel fashion that had me wondering how the models walked on daggers, Karl Lagerfield kept in simple, girly, and presumably comfy on the Chanel Couture runway. Seemingly, he seemed to channel Coco Chanel who once said “Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”
To wit, there was nary a single high heel on the fashion runway.
Of course these sequined flats could only go with this tweed number.
My favorite flats on the runway were these soft pink mary janes with ruffles on the vamp and side. Can’t you just image that one of the ballerinas in Edgar Degas‘ paintings would wear these?
Sadly, the remainder of the shoes on the Chanel runway were just a bit too plain for me.
and left me wishing that we could see updated, comfy versions of this lovely silver banded flat.
