Look For Less Fashion : Inspired or Copyright infringement

I have struggled with putting up look for less posts for so long now because i couldn’t really make up my mind what side of the fence i belonged to. But for the sake of my shoe lovers who have been requesting for less priced options of the luxury brands, i’d drop my opinion right here.

I have a problem with copies of shoes like the Valentino Rock Studs pumps or the Aquazzura wild thing sandals. These are trademark designs of a brand. You see a pair of rockstuds from afar and can immediately identify them. I find it quite appalling to see an exact copy in cheaper material all in the name of look for less.  For shoes with details like the Sophia Websters Angel Wings sandals, i will NOT do a copy design. But that is just my opinion.

This makes me cringe….

Errrr… No, i’d pass.

On the other hand, there’s the Stuart Weitzman nudist sandal, those are simple basic sandals with no detail. A couple of other luxury brands have similar looking sandals and that’s fine. Having a less priced option of those is very welcome and i don’t think anyone will raise an eyebrow.

Hit or Miss, i would buy a cheaper pair of basic sandals like these ones.

    Lol @ inspired copies! ??
    Like you, I wouldn’t wear an inspired look that is pretty much like the original! But for basic plain designs, a similar alternative is welcome!

    Nice article. I will rather save to buy tgecreal thing. I don’t get knock offs when it’s obvious it’s not the real thing.
