For the new Ballet season, the Coq Sportif and the Paris Opera have decided to create a new pair of exceptional trainers. After the success of their first pair of shoes embellished with gold leaves, the two houses have seized another strong symbol of the Corps de Ballet: the tiara and its iconic loop shapes.
Each time an Etoile is appointed, a personalized tiara is made and given to her on her first defile as an Etoile. The tiara is always designed following a pattern of loop shapes. This shape is precisely what has been revisited by the Paris Opera workshops to create a shoes jewel. Shaped with 6 loops, this jewel is made to decorate the shoes laces of a Blazon crafted in France, a crown to the shoe as an Etoile is crowned with her tiara. To highlight this cooperation, the jewel is decorated with a multitude of Swarovski© crystal beads.
This limited edition of 45 pairs of trainers will be available from October 13 in the brand’s Parisian shops, on the e-shop www.lecoqsportif.com, and in the Palais Garnier Shop, priced at €400.
