Love at first sight: Chanel’s Derby shoes

Karl Lagerfeld has always been known for his eccentric sources of inspiration that create effortlessly stylish collections and Chanel’s Cruise 2016/2017 collection is no exception. Leave it to Lagerfeld to blend masculinity with femininity, and balance it with Cuban and Parisian touches to create a collection that’s truly unique. Though there were many pieces in the collection that are worth noting, it’s the Derby shoes that stole the show.

Chanel’s Derby shoes are the perfect pair for day to night.

Featuring all the codes of traditional men’s footwear, the iridescent, gold and silver elements give it a feminine look that’s classic yet modern. Making sure the shoes become yet another iconic design for Chanel, the different tones give the shoes an authentic touch with the brand’s sought-after flair. Besides the statement Derby shoes, Lagerfeld also created a mule version if you’re looking for something to slip on.

Each pair of shoes in the collection is unique and a statement piece to say the least. From creased leather to patent finishes, every material used in the shoes are reflective of the vibrant colours that resemble Havana. Offering luxurious patchwork to contrast the elegant silhouette, we can’t think of more comfortable shoes to take you from day to night in style.
