Object of Desire: Coach 1941 Chain Platform Chelsea Bootie

The Chelsea boot is named after an area that became fashionable with the ’60s mod scene in London. But while the rise of the boot’s popularity may be tied to a particular time and place, the timelessness of its design is undeniable. This close-fitting, ankle boot is easily pulled on — it usually features elasticated panels at the sides — and comes with a sturdy, comfortable sole. This season, Stuart Vevers has elevated the Chelsea boot with clever details that effortlessly allows them to segue from daywear to night. A platform heel elongates the chunky silhouette while the glossy, block-effect design has caramel brown leather, ribbed ankle gores for a touch of luxe. The icing on the cake? A chain detail that adds an element of toughness. Pair them with Coach’s darkly romantic, floral dresses or with close-fitting trousers — their versatility will surprise you.
