There’s only one fashion house where glamour is made and icons are born: Chanel. Reimagining and updating classic luxury while experimenting with modern innovations, it manages to ingrain a bit of magic in everything it creates. From the quilted ‘2.55’ bag and that signature tweed jacket to the unforgettable allure of ‘N°5’, each has left its mark on the way women dress. The Chanel Cruise 2018/19 collection was no exception, playfully bringing forth a redefined classic for your inner child in the form of the Mary-Jane shoe.
Perpetually looking to its grande dame for inspiration, Chanel paid tribute to Gabrielle Chanel aboard the Flying Cloud, a yacht that belonged to the Duke of Westminster. With her affection for pleated skirts, quality knitwear, and low-heeled shoes weaving its way through the contemporary collection, it’s clear that Karl Lagerfeld’s attention to detail knows no bounds. In this video shared exclusively with Savoir Flair, Mary-Janes take center stage and, once again, showcase the brand’s affinity for feminine accessories. In silver goatskin, white calfskin, or embellished with sequins, this style of footwear is a modern yet playful take on what is traditionally considered a children’s shoe — and now we want a pair.
