Dior and Chanel send haute couture sneakers down the runway

When you say Haute Couture your mind flies at a red carpet event ,breath-taking gowns ,exquisite fabrics and embellishments ,exceptional handicraft, unaffordable and many times uncomfortable. When you think at sneakersprobably what comes to your mind are gym,street,comfortable, affordable ,sporty, sporty-chic ,mass-produced.

Taking a look at this two you get the idea that these terms are antithetical. No matter how luxurious a sneaker would be ,it will never be an haute couture piece! Well let me tell you things are to change! And here is the proof : On Monday at Christian Dior Haute Couture spring/summer 2014 fashion show, the creative director Raf Simons introduced the haute couture sneaker followed on Tuesday by Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel .

Among architectural high heels at Dior,Raf Simons send models down the runaway in black slip-ons trainers(or aqua socks) adorned with colorful stars and little flowers . Lagerfeld opted for a classic version and paired the entire collection with sneakers . “Every outfit featured a couture sneaker by Massaro: python, with lace, pearls, and tweed. (If you’re curious about the cost of such an item, the price tag will probably be something in the vicinity of €3,000.) ”-style.com
