A shoe as a means of travel
by Loula Levedi
BABOUCHES: A traditional leather shoe from the Arabic-Muslim world.
It appears in France the sixteenth century and reappears with CHANEL for Cruise Paris-Dubaï collection 2015. I just could not help to see Jasmine on it, flying with it. A shoe, as a magic carpet, transporting us where the magic is.
This shoe could easily guide us to a mental journey into the world of the East or even the Egyptian feluccas and associatively, even if it seems strange, in Roman times as a chariot which leads passionately horses, just like CHANEL leads and counts passionate fans and believers.
