Karl Lagerfeld loves to commemorate a moment, and what better happenstance than the reopening of Chanel’s groundbreaking Soho store? A python peep toe pump and python ballerina flat are among the Soho exclusive shoes that will launch when the store officially opens on Friday. The iconic ballet flat is re-imagined in red or iridescent grey snakeskin, and open-toe heels in brown and iridescent grey snakeskin are elegant and chic. Meanwhile, a black unisex boot mixes snakeskin with calfskin and has an urban, sporty feel right at home with its downtown locale. As Coco Chanel herself once said, “The final points of elegance are shoes.” Now run, don’t walk!
Pump ($1,050) & ballerina flat ($995), available at Chanel Soho, 139 Spring St. (212) 334-0055
