Similar Shoe Design

Some commentators have suggested a battle of the luxury brands is brewing, after Dolce & Gabbana’s designer took to social media to note Chanel’s ‘interesting’ similar shoe design.

Stefano Gabbana highlighted a lookalike comparison between a D&G shoe in 2014 with a style that debuted at Chanel’s ‘La Modernité de l’Antiquité’ Cruise show yesterday.

While no official statement has been made from either party, Stefano Gabbana, one-half of the design duo, re-posted a snap from Who Did It First on his personal Instagram.

The fancy footwear in question? Both brand’s were clearly inspired by ancient Greece – endorsing heels shaped like Ionic columns.

Gabanna did sign off his caption with a heart emoji though. So, it could just be harmless fash-un fun after all…

‘It feels great to be able to give our customers such a nice looking and versatile collection, made from low-impact materials,’ says Louise Lasson, Creative Director at Weekday. ‘This season sharp simplicity meets sporty elements, giving way to refined details such as ultra-thin straps, fine ribbing and cleans lines as well as sporty details such as high-neck lines, thick straps, raw elastic bands and buckles.

‘A vibrant colour palette of yellow, red, pink, tan and black encourages a mix-and-match approach,’ she says. ‘Creating a range of options that are both modern and flattering.’
