    High shine, low-tops. That's the future of haute couture, if Karl Lagerfeld's latest runway show for Chanel is any indication. And, consider us sold.

    The fashions that debuted at the Grand Palais were a confectionery of sparkles and embellishments. With their head-to-toe crystals, tutu-esque silhouettes, and swan-like feathery updos, the looks that walked the runway were like a Lagerfeld-choreographed ballet — hold the pointe shoes, and lace up the trainers instead. Of course, the French fashion house supplied classic pieces we've come to expect from the label, such as tweed suiting that's tailored to precision. But, in addition to complementing the new athletic vibes, the haute couture runway also welcomed (slightly more) casual coordinating tees and tops. Think of it as the high-fashion response to sweats, but instead of heavy cotton and drawstring waists, these renditions featured elegant sheers and perfectly placed bling.

    Yes, we admit that our current love affair with athletic gear and rubber-soled shoes certainly has us viewing this show in a very favorable light. But, we also have a feeling that couture's penchant for kicks will be just as rad and endearing when (or if) we slip back into our four-inch heels in a couple of years. See all of the super-sweet looks from Chanel's haute couture runway, straight ahead.
