Is This…A Chanel Ugg Boot?

In the power struggle between Chanel and Uggs' influence, we think we've found our first real face-off. The Coveteur recently took a peek into fashion editor Virginie Dhello's Parisian pad, and found… these. Cap-toe, quilted, shearling boots… the podal equivalent of Cyrano and Roxane's love child, the unlikeliest of fashion combinations that leaves us feeling like we might need a hug. "These are my super, super comfortable Chanel winter shoes," says Virginie. "I love the mix of Nike Dunk, UGG boots, and the Chanel touch." The rest of Virginie's space is filled with only beautiful things, so we're getting some weird, are we in the minority here? Is the magic of Chanel just that powerful it could even transform the flat, shearling boot? (The Coveteur)
