Spring shoe trends 2014: feathers and textures

January 23, 2014

Mirrors, feathers and silver crocodiles. We thought we saw it all until Chanel brought out the big guns for spring: a running shoe. That’s the statement kicker. Cue the deflating balloon:

Really, Karl? This is a lousy Chanel vision that we can only image came to you in a nightmare and then somehow materialized as a runway apparation for Spring 2014

Really, Karl? If there weren’t photos to prove it, we’d never believe this. Behold: a Chanel vision that we can only image came in a nightmare and then somehow materialized as a runway apparation for spring 2014

The season thankfully brings sightly options, so we’ll curb this one. Also in spring’s oddities come Schiaparelli’s birded gladiator sandal:

Spring 2014 breathes in the disco era with mirrors at Versace and angles at Christian Dior. The season’s focus on texture and movement takes a beautiful lace-up lesson at Alexandre Vauthier and plays with see-through plastic at Jean-Paul Gaultier. Take a peek.
