Yesterday afternoon, in the historical gardens of Versailles, the much awaited Chanel Cruise show was on everyone’s mind and all over twitter and instagram. Once again, Karl didn’t fail to impress, first of all by choosing an extraordinary venue and second of all for concocting a dreamy collection in a palette of pastels with denim and floral accents and a play on volumes. The whole collection had a punk-ish/royale feel and got me thinking about how would Maria Theresa of Spain and Francoise d’Aubigné (Louis Fourtneeth’s former wives) would look like if she lived in our century? I already spotted some fabulous boy bags, and the platform trainers will undeniably be the next “it shoe”. The question is, what do we think about them?
