Chanel’s ‘Supersonic’ Haute Couture

Karl Lagerfeld showcased his showcase his athletic-inspired spring 2014 collection yesterday. He focused his efforts around the waist, bringing back the hourglass silhouette by putting tight corsets front and center. These were often topped with cropped jackets adorned with crystal buttons, and paired with either straight or flared knee-length skirts in light purple, pink or striped tweeds.

But the most important message here were the sneakers worn with every single outfit. These clothes took on a certain street credibility when paired with the pink, white or black trainers, which were handmade by Massaro, another atelier owned by Chanel. Each pair — whether python or tweed or bejeweled, all veiled in lace — took a minimum of 30 hours of to make.
