Boot thong flat sandals or when fashion trends go wrong

Flat sandals with boot thong in the Chanel Cruise 2011/12 fashion show.

I really love Chanel but, what was Karl thinking this time? 🙂

This roman style inspired boot thong, semi-gladiator, flat sandal or “Tango thong”, does not look any confortable for the models wearing them.  Abbey Lee Kershaw, Sigrid Agren and Melissa Tammerijn, walking extravagant on the runway with their toes popping out. We expect perfection from a brand like Chanel.




And Versace Spring-summer 2012 men’s wear  gladiator  sandals with socks (!!??)

When fashion imagines Byzantium

Chanel reaches six collections a year with Karl Lagerfeld’s great imagination.This time influenced by the Byzantine Empire and a rich style, presents it in a Pre-Fall 2011 fashion show that results in an original mosaic of creations well adapted to actual trends.

Rich materials tunics with mosaic like buttons and accessories covered in precious stones. A wonderfully expressed point of view on fashion with black, gold, silver and copper colors combined perfectly.

Fashion and Ice Age

I wonder how fashion might interpret another ice age, if suddenly it will be here again and how we would dress for the event,   warm and elegantly to go outside to walk and enjoy among the icebergs and frozen lakes just cold.

This is what you can feel in this original fall/winter fashion show by Chanel in which you can  find lots of leather, fur (synthetic), wool, mohair, and thick tweed. I thank Karl Lagerfeld for his imagination and for bringing us this fine show.

Accessories are also heavy and  some of them with  an ethnic air.

Some of the light dresses are really cute also


🙂 The boots…..I’ll say some Yeti style… hairstyle and eye shadows well…could be better

Fashion Shows 2010 Cruise

Chanel Cruise

In addition to the twice a year season collection events, we have the “cruise/resort collections” that present a pre-season line for us, so we can be in expectation of what is going to be next. Some houses like Chanel, Prada, and Gucci are doing pre-season collections successfully, they show, the latest trends, let’s say, online.

As temperatures are high and hot, first look at cruise events with a summer touch, then you have some links to look at fall/winter events.

Chanel Cruise

When you have the chance to go to a fashion show (and luckily get to sit front row or not …well) you see the fashion designer at the end taking some feedback from the public. The fashion designer is doing his campaign by himself directly.
