Do the words "Chanel couture" send a tingle down your spine? They should. The brand is known for its stunning haute couture collections and, this year, Karl Lagerfeld breathed new life into the brand and the concept of haute couture by producing designs that pair the classic corset with surprisingly contemporary footwear - the sporty sneaker.
His designs enhance the silhouette through rounded shoulders, curved hips and a small, dainty waist, accentuated by corsets embroidered with meticulously applied stones and sequins. When accessorised by the sneakers, the look is fresh, irreverent, thoroughly feminine - and thoroughly Chanel.
