ELLE (Canada) - - Editors Note -

I had a lit­tle tête-à-tête with Karl Lager­feld when he was in Toronto for the launch of the Art Shoppe Con­dos + Lofts project. (He’s designing the lob­bies.) Karl is a for­ward-think­ing in­no­va­tor who isn’t in­ter­ested in re­vis­it­ing the past. “You have to like the present,” he once said. “If not, your life be­comes sec­ond-hand, if you think it was bet­ter be­fore. Or that it will be bet­ter in the fu­ture.” That said, he’s not above a lit­tle strate­gic his­tor­i­cal sampling.

Case in point: the iconic two-toned Chanel pumps he rein­tro­duced for fall/win­ter 2015.
