You could be mistaken for thinking the two-tone Chanel slingbacks seen on editors and bloggers of late are immaculate vintage finds or have been lovingly passed down from generation to generation. In fact, the shoes are a new take on the classic design originally conceived by Mademoiselle Chanel herself.
First presented at the fall/winter 2015 ready-to-wear collection, the nude slingback with a black cap-toe detail and a low block heel has been popping up everywhere over fashion month – seen on the likes of magazine editors Miroslava Duma (Buro 24/7), Laura Stoloff (WSJ Magazine) and Melissa Rubini (InStyle) as well as The Man Repeller Leandra Medine, blogger Pernille Teisbaek and model Soo-Joo Park.
The modest block heel makes them a timeless choice, and should you invest in a pair, one your future grandchildren will no doubt thank you for.
