New Chanel Sandals Are Packing For Summer Vacation

Equality, elegance, effortless luxury—those are just a few words out of hundreds that we could use to describe Chanel. The powerhouse has taken womenswear by storm since its humble beginnings in 1910 when Gabrielle Chanel founded the fashion house as a millinery shop in Paris. What began as a boutique for beautifully constructed hats has since turned into a billion-dollar label with little black dresses, suiting, tweed and fragrances, and—our favourite—sandals.

In the summer of 2019, Chanel’s dad’s sandals were at the top of every fashion insider’s wishlist. Since, the brand has remained a go-to for extraordinary summertime footwear (many pairs have the iconic interlocking C’s, of course). While the mainstream dad sandals have made their way through the circuit and begun slowing down, Chanel has continued to debut warm weather-appropriate footwear—and the recent iterations are all about minimalism and longevity.

In the recent Chanel collections, gladiator-style straps, kitten heels, and crocheted mules made their way down the runway, reaffirming the fashion world’s emphasis on ready-to-wear that you can actually wear. These silhouettes not only make for seamless styling, but also ensure that your recent purchase is worth the investment. As you prep your summer packing list, celebrate all things Chanel by shopping the five best sandals from the iconic fashion house’s recent collections.
