The credit crunch has brought out the DIY tendencies in all of us. Even head designer Lucas Ossendrijver was bitten by the crafting bug with these beaded sneakers for Lanvin's Spring/Summer 2009 accessories collection.
The high-top leather trainers are accented with satin and pearls, and will set you back nearly $1,000. I love the texture that the pearls provide these Lanvin beaded sneakers, although they're not quite in my price range.
Implications - If you were someone unaffected by the recent economic downturn and have a passion for footwear fashion, then these shoes are perfect for you. The intricate beading design won't come across as too flashy, ensuring that your peers won't suspect the high price of these shoes.
