If you’ve ever been through my phone, closet, or even office, you would know that I’m a big time Chanel girl. While my collection mostly boasts classic vintage Chanel (think 80s-luxury signature cropped-suits with fringe and wool details), I’m actually kind of obsessed with these new Camellias from Karl’s Pre-Spring/Summer 2013 Collection.

The calfskin sneakers are embellished with a cluster of blooming camellias and come in a few different color combinations, but I prefer black-on-black (after all, I do live in New York City) over a white platform sole.

Perfect with black tights or leather pants, these shoes provide a flawless balance between cool-downtown-edge and sophisticated footwear. 

XOX,
