Chanel sneakers: Now in your grocer’s aisle?

On the heels of Chanel’s Spring 2014 couture show in late January—which featured lace-up sneakers—creative director Karl Lagerfeld continued running with the trend in his Fall/Winter RTW (ready-to-wear or ready-to-workout?) collection at Paris Fashion Week today.

With this show, the esteemed fashion house has issued the proclamation that running shoes are officially acceptably cool to wear with anything—from leggings to Chanel suits and dresses. (Dior, with its sneaker heel this week, seems to have seconded it.)

Of course, the most striking aspect of today’s Chanel show was the setting—the Grand Palais, transformed into a Chanel Supermarché, where models wandered aisles of produce, made-for-show Chanel foods (hello Chanel “spaghettini”), pretended to read food labels, and—wait for it—pushed actual grocery carts!

Scroll for a photo recap if you happened to miss the show. Because you might have been, I don’t know, running errands? Grocery shopping really is glamorous after all!
