“The sneaker is like jeans for the feet,” proclaimed Karl Lagerfeld. “Women wear sneakers everywhere these days — to work, to dance.”
In January, Lagerfeld accessorized Chanel’s spring couture show with an ultratony take on sneakers: the traditional athletic trainer done in pastiches of python, tweed, lace, pearls and crystals, each pair taking 30 hours of labor to make and only available for sale with the purchase of an entire haute couture ensemble. That same season, Dior’s Raf Simons showed haute sneakers as well, glittering, hand-embroidered mesh slip-ons.
