Oh Chanel...everybody loves ChanelBut how many people who wear these ballerinas know why they are so special? Why did Coco want them to be bicolor? And why choose nude and black? It's not just a coincidence!
The reason behind the nude color is Coco believed it would make the ladies legs look longer by creating a continuity between the leg, the ankle and the foot. The black end is there to make the foot look shorter, small feet being something ladies should aspire to.
To be honest, Coco would probably prefer a bit of heel on these shoes...but modern times call for confortable shoes to rush around in.
All this just to say, when you wear such a historic brand, be aware of the 'baggage' that comes with it. Just remember that you are an ambassador for the brand, you should represent their values and beliefs.
Ditch all the other colors (especially pink!) and invest in the classic!
