I went to Saks Fifth Avenue today and they had these cute Chanel flower rain boots in the shoe department. Last year they had a pair similar to this pair with a white sole and a white flower with a black flower. This new version is the black rain boots with a silver flower and a grey flower with sparkles all over it. I actually preferred this newer version because it was more subtle. What do you think? It is going to rain in LA again and the winter is going to last a few more months, so I think these boots are great whether you live in the snow or the rain. This is a classic look that can last a few years.
Chanel : Cruise 2009 Shoe Collection
This is the only photo I got of the trunk show at Beverly Hills today September 18, 2008 from 5P-7P. There were lots of Saks Marketing People, PR people, and Chanel People there who told me that I could not take photos of their Cruise Collection because it is going to be shown on their Chanel site in December 2008.
So, I only got a photo of the table with my drink and pistachio cupcake and the rest I downloaded from the web from the Chanel Miami Cruise Collection 2009 show including the whole show from Youtube.
Here is what I saw today at Saks and my review: the return for Chanel Cruise 2009 is the CAMELLIA Jelly Thong Sandal.
Yes, I know you were all awaiting the return of this shoe and I have a pair in the black with the white flower and a pair with the white thong sandal with the black flower.
This coming season they will be bringing the sandals back with different colors. There was one pair in black with a clear camelia, a pair in a clear color, and a pair of orange camelia with a buckle around the ankle which was also very cute.
The models came out with white trench coats and black flat sandals with gold small cc’s on the back of the heels. Underneath, they wore tank swim suits in white or black with the word CHANEL across the back bottom of the suits. They wore big white sun hats and lots of Chanel jewelry.
The big message was pastels and patent leather. Gray was a big color, and the strappy gladiator is returning for another season. There were some amazing black messenger bags with the Chanel sneakers for the casual look, and the classic flap bag in a patchwork of 3 colors pink, gray, and white to give you that very 70’s feel.
My least favorite were the wedge peep toe spats looking shoes Chanel showed in all black leather like the photo here and the black and white lattice. I did not get the look. Unless you are 6 feet tall with mile long legs, I think this look would only make your legs look chunky. I will stick with my platform Simple 100 Nude Christian Louboutins anytime.
Overall, Chanel gave a nice collection. I would have to say the must have AGAIN will be the camellia jelly thong sandal or the ankle buckle jelly. They are affordable and great for Spring into summer or all year round if you live in a warm climate. The gladiator gray platform sandals are the must have if you want a high heel for the season. It is all about gray.
If you want the Camellia Jelly Sandals and Thongs before they sell out again this season – call Ann Kazangian at Saks at 310 887 5350 and let her know Shopping and Info gave you her info and she will put you on the list for when the shoes come in. Happy Shopping.
