The 2015 resort collections was Vogue Magazine inspiration to create the perfect video that captures the 60s inspired little white lace dresses of the resort runway season with Karlie Kloss dancing up a retro storm in a chic collection of classic lace pieces with modern styling with a minimal aesthetic that are both bohemian and romantic in texture that create the perfect transitional styles for summer soirees, fall dressing, winter celebrations and beach side getaways that you'll want to dance in too.
Gabrielle Chanel was given over to the care of nuns at the age of twelve and became endlessly inspired by her days spent at the convent orphanage creating potent associations that would become intrinsically incorporated into her designs. In 1957, wanting a shoe that hide the wear of the day yet still created elegance, she created a two toned low heeled shoe that meant she could gallivant around doing what she loved best - playing sport and going on trips - without visibly dirtying her shoes.
The Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Chanel runway, saw the return of this legendary shoe, spotted on every look of its fall season. The versatile and stylish cut, easily incorporates into any wardrobe that as Chanel herself would say, 'adds the last touch of elegance' to any outfit.
Minimalism meets classic function in this timeless shoe design that would be worth taking out a few pairs of previous seasons shoes to give back and donate to a worthwhile cause to invest in this quality classic to add to your wardrobe that likely, if kept well, will be worth handing down to the next generation to keep the tradition of timeless elegance in this effortless neutral that will take you from work day and weekend getaway to museum afternoons, late evening ballet class to mid-morning brunch and back. Watch the making of Chanel's originally conceived elegance in this modern take on her design.
