Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz and Lucas Ossendrijver have been exercising the street dandy look for a few seasons now with pitch perfect execution. Beloved by the ladies for pretty frills and soft shapes, the label had won the hearts of grown-up sneaker fiends who are looking for a little sophistication and luxury in their kicks. For Spring/Summer 2010, a new ankle sneaker had just arrived at colette, fusing three popular sneaker trends into one shoe– the chic lumberjack, the urban wanderer and the street smart sartorialist. Hi-top sneaker in shape of hiking boots are given the casual sneaker kick with vulcanized soles and they come in two fresh colorways– an all-over tonal green with matching soles, and another mixing denim with brown leather. The silhouette is slightly chunky a la outdoor boots with padded ankles. Both numbers would go perfectly with your favorite denim but the denim pair is especially fun to try with the layering denim look this season (mixing different shades of denim together is no longer a sartorial taboo). If you are feeling them, they are now available online at colette.
