Gianvito Rossi

After writing this blog for more than 9 years and scouring the internet for designer dupes even longer, I hardly raise an eyebrow anymore whenever I come across a budget brand or fast-fashion chain copying a high fashion designer. But when designers – with very similar price points – copy amongst each other? Baffling! Which is exactly how I felt when I recently stumbled upon a pair of frayed satin slides by Stuart Weitzman. I knew I had seen that same style somewhere before, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on where. So after a few days I have almost already forgotten about it when I accidentally saw the Gianvito Rossi‘s “Barth” Sandal which looks so much alike, they’re basically designer shoe twins. Both have the same design, the same details, the same fabric and the same color! The prices, however, are somewhat different, but still close enough together to be both considered luxury shoes with Rossi’s sandals costing $645 (now on sale for $258) and Weitzman’s version being priced at $375 (now on sale for $150). I can’t tell who is copying whom though since I don’t know who came out first with their shoe style. Anyway, both sandals are absolutely fabulous and right on trend with the soft pink tone and the silky satin upper, so you can either go with your personal preference or your bank account because style-wise it’s a close tie between these two.

A New Day “Lola” Cross Band Slide Sandals

Update (09/12/2017): Spotted the most beautiful Gianvito Rossi Barth dupe sandals today! They’re by A New Day, Target’s newly launched fashion line, are super affordable at $22.99 and look exactly like the pricey designer version! By the way, I know the label says “Mossimo Supply Co.”, so I guess Target hasn’t said goodbye to Mossimo just yet and probably only had the line rebranded for marketing purposes.

Satin sandal slides have been a huge trend this year and Gianvito Rossi just knows how to make a chic summer flat that will look fabulous both with dressy dresses or with casual jeans or shorts. I love the effortlessness of being able to simply slide into a shoe and be instantly ready to go. These are the perfect shoes for a summer vacation! If you have the lavish shopping budget to opt for a pair of flats that’ll set you back $595, of course.

Chinese Laundry “Pattie” Frayed Satin Slide Sandals

Luckily, we’ve been able to find a just as chic alternative by Chinese Laundry which looks a lot like the designer real deal above, but will cost you less than $40 (currently on sale for $22.99 down from $49.95). These stylish satin slides come in four different colors, but the rose and the nude version are my personal favorites! Steal deal alert!

Mango “Nilo” Fringe Satin Sandals

If you want to save even more, check out these super cute satin slide sandals by Mango which come in either orange or lavender and are currently on sale for $29.99 (were $49.99). They have a more prominent fringe, but the overall design is still strinkingly similar to the Gianvito Rossi designer version. Love these!

Seems like we can’t catch a break from satin slides at the moment and to be honest with you: I don’t really mind! There’s just something so effortlessly chic about slipping into a pair of delicate satin mules, don’t you agree? A few days ago, I was looking through the newest arrivals at my favorite online shops when I saw a picture of Dolce Vita’s “Henry” Cross-Strap Satin Mules. The design seemed instantly familiar to me, but I couldn’t put my finger on the designer inspiration right away. So I kept on browsing while my brain was doing its usual shoe memory scanning process in the background. And suddenly it just hit me that the Dolce Vita design was a lovely hybrid of Gucci’s “Webby” High Heel Mule from last year and Gianvito Rossi’s “Barth” Sandal Slides which we have already featured here in a previous blog post. Copycat math has striked once again! And I must admit: $595 + $645 = $130 is exactly the kind of shopping math that I like!

Gianvito Rossi is slowly but surely taking my heart by storm with his shoe collections! I can’t remember anyone of his shoe styles lately that I wasn’t fond of. This woven multi-strap sandal, for instance, I like it a lot. It’s a couple of seasons old already, so I couldn’t find many details on it, but I’m pretty sure it would’ve been out of my price range anyway.

Forever 21 Braided Faux Suede Sandals

Apparently Forever 21 liked Rossi’s woven sandal concept, so they came up with a neat dupe version of their own. F21 ditched the bronzey metallic color and instead opted for more wearable colors, as well as a much nicer price tag, of course.

A few months ago we received a reader request from Maggie who asked:

Any idea where a sista can find some leather strap shoes like these that AREN’T $1.000?!

The shoe Maggie was talking about was a strappy stiletto pump by Gianvito Rossi which has been on my personal wish list as well after I first spotted it on personal style blogger at large, Blair Eadie from Atlantic-Pacific. It’s a truly gorgeous shoe, but shelling out that kind of money is simply not an option for me and Maggie (and probably you as well). So the hunt for Gianvito Rossi Carey dupes ensued.

River Island Black Leather Strappy Pumps

Et voilà, River Island comes to our rescue! Their strappy black leather pump may not be an identical match, but for $130, it’s the closest you can get to Gianvito Rossi’s Carey heel at the moment. A few sizes are already sold out (including mine, boohoo!), so if you’re lusting after this style and yours is still available, I wouldn’t wait too long to order.

Milanoo Pointy-Toe Stiletto Pumps

If you don’t want to spend quite as much or if your size is simply sold out for the Gianvito Rossi dupe above, then take a look at this strappy heel I discovered at Milanoo. The design isn’t quite as sharp and polished compared to the original, but the overall look still screams Gianvito Rossi Carey and the price of $56.99 is pretty neat, too.
