The story of one of the greatest French brand's ever.
The brand Chanel is now a true reference in all-things fashion and luxury, and that is true to the very ends of this planet we call earth. Since the adventure began in 1910, Chanel has been the incarnation of independent, liberated women. The designs see themselves as contemporary, perfect for satisfying women’s fantasies, and timeless, with classics that can be a valuable addition to any wardrobe and last a lifetime. In view of its extraordinary success, the brand has used the same expert know-how to produce clothes, perfumes, jewellery and footwear. One design of shoes has stood out from the rest over the years and through different collections, and that is the line known as Slingback.
Everything you need to know about the famous Slingback shoe and the different forms its comes in.
At different points in time, Chanel has developed different styles of shoe but the Slingback range is without doubt the design that has proved the most endearing with female luxury shoppers. This legendary two-tone shoe came into being in 1957. Originally, it was released in the form of a high-heel with a strap and a square 5 cm heel. It has always been known for allowing women to have full freedom of movement. The two-tone style is the strong point of the design since the shoes of the time were mostly classic and mainly monochrome. In fact, the shoe is beige at the bottom with a touch of black to set the shoe off in all its glory. Famous celebrities from the time like Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve were quick to adopt the style. Chanel, however, did not rest on its laurels and revisited the design each season, bringing out different versions, from sandals to flat lace-ups and high-heels.
