Real vs. Steal – Givenchy Jersey Print Open-Toe Wedges

by Irina on February 11, 2010

If you’re a fan of fierce designer shoes I’m pretty sure you’ve already heard a word or two about the genius that is Riccardo Tisci and his brilliant work for Givenchy. The color palette for Givenchy’s Spring 2010 collection was mostly limited to black & white and all the shades in between. The shoes were over-the-top as usual and – combined with the tribal prints and the extreme platform – gave off a modern urban warrior vibe. I know these won’t be everyone’s cup of tea; for most people it will be either flaming hatred or endless love. I belong to the latter. But as much as I love a crazy designer shoe, at $1.600 a pair all I can do is admire them from afar.

Jeffrey Campbell “Tick” Tribal Wedges

Jeffrey Campbell is the underdog among all copycats. Only he is fearless enough to imitate such a bold and uncommon design. Where others go mainstream JC stays true to key features which is probably one of the factors why his shoes sell like hot cakes. These tribal-printed wedges based on the super sold-out “Tick” style scream Givenchy even though they do have a few differences (wedge heel, platform height, etc.). It pains me to say this, but the lower wedge heel is probably a lot easier to handle than Givenchy’s sky-high 5″-6″. Stock up on these fine heels while your size is still available!

  • I think this wedge has too much going on. I’d much prefer if instead of a wedge, it had a stiletto. That way, the craziness would be better balanced out.
