Inspired by the world of dance and gymnastics, the ballerina first appeared at CHANEL in the Spring-Summer 1984 Ready-to-Wear collection.
Over the following decade it would change style and color, and just like the iconic handbags, the ballerina would appear on countless runways ultimately becoming a CHANEL must-have. Every new season brings its own variation. A bow, a slingback, stamped with a double C, in silk satin, in velvet, lace or tweed, in smooth, metallic or patent leather, block colored or two-tone, high or low cut… the ballerina suits all styles and is there for every moment in a woman’s life.
The silver PVC version with a black gros-grain toe is one of the key pieces from the Spring-Summer 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection. It also comes in fuchsia-burgundy, navy-black and as a powder pink quilted version. For day and for night, the ballerina carries in it the singularity of CHANEL style, timelessly and in the air du temps of every era.
