The continued attention on the Chanel 5018s is pretty wild, especially when you consider they first debuted in the Spring 2007 RTW show. They made the New York Times Style Section yesterday in a piece on fashion illustrators, "What a Lens Can't Capture." Danny Roberts' "Chanel Girls" features a small army of 5018-wearers.
Danny Roberts' other illustrations are worth checking out (via his Flickr and his blog, Igor and Andre). You can even order yourself a "Chanel Girls" t-shirt!
