I’ve gotten very used to seeing budget fashion brands copying designer labels, but it still always baffles me when I see two renowned designer houses copying from each other. And this happens to be the case with these two-tone platform pumps here. I’m not sure whose shoe came out first – Giuseppe Zanotti’s or Jimmy Choo’s – but it seems like someone’s taken one too many clues from the other. Sure, it could be a coincidence that both brands bring out a nude/black almond-toe shaped two-tone platform pump at the same time, but I’m having my doubts about that. What do you think? What’s your guess on who’s been the copycat here?
