Wearable tech may be nascent when it comes to full integration in the fashion industry, but every now and again there’s a little nod to it in some of the big seasonal shows.
That was the case today at Chanel , where Karl Lagerfeld sent light-up sandals down the Paris Fashion Week runway as though to illuminate the emergency exit path for his Aviation-themed collection.
As models walked a set designed to look like an airport terminal – complete with check-ins, departure boards and baggage carousels – numerous versions of the velcro-fastening shoes, which featured LEDs placed around a thick flatform sole, were sent out paired with different looks.
