Meet Your New Shoe Obsession: The Chanel Mule


Chanel mules

Each season, there’s one accessory that seems to capture the street style zeitgeist.

Last season it was Gucci’s backless flat loafer. And while this style was still notable on the feet of the great and good of the fashion pack throughout the latest round of fashion weeks, it seemed to have been usurped a newer, peppier shoe sibling: the Chanel heeled mule.

With their signature black toe cap and intricate pearl-and-snake-adorned heel, they made their catwalk debut at last December’s Metiers d’Art show in Rome.

Since landing in stores in June, they’ve made their way into the wardrobes of everyone from Giovanna Engelbert to Leaf Greener. Consider them the new-season update on Chanel’s hugely popular classic slingback.

They’re available in three colour ways – black lambskin and grosgrain toe cap, white lambskin with black grosgrain toe cap and beige suede with black grosgrain toe-cap – and retail at £830, not that they’re easy to get hold of.

We can understand the obsession though – they’re just as good with dresses as they are trousers, and after seasons of favouring flats we’re in the mood for a little elevation.

(If you can’t quite stretch to £800, Zara are doing a similar version for just £39.99.)
