Style on Trial: Chanel’s ‘Gun Shoes’ – Cruise 2009


Karl Lagerfeld, get your gun! Oh no, wait: you already did, didn’t you? These shoes were part of Chanel’s 2009 Cruise Collection, and were actually designed by Laurence Decade, who was apparently handed an image of a gun by Lagerfeld, with the instruction to turn it into footwear. And he did. The scary bit is that these aren’t just pieces of catwalk art – they will actually be available to buy with the rest of the collection. Our question is, will you buy them, or do you think The Fashion Police should step in and do some handgun control on these babies?

(Personally, all we can say is that we’re looking into having The Fashion Police’s actual handguns made to look like shoes. Any hints, Uncle Karl?)
