Dear oh dear, oh dear Nasty Gal. You really do love ripping off designer pieces, don’t you? Well at least you can rest a bit easier as it wasn’t just you this time; shoe brand Jeffrey Campbell has gotten in on the act too. Famed a few years ago for their chunky ankle boots that seemed to be on every blogger and fashionista’s feet, the brand faded from public consciousness for a while and obviously this is how they’ve decided to come back into the forefront of the fashion industry.
For all my negativity, I secretly believe that their rip-off of the Christian Dior spring/summer 2015 collection of shoes is actually a bit of an improvement on the original design. I love Dior, but this collection really done nothing for me and nothing encapsulated the ‘meh-ness’ of this collection more than those absolutely fugly shoes. Now I still wouldn’t buy the Jeffrey Campbell/Nasty Gal versions, but at least the heel doesn’t look so ridiculous.
So on the left we have the original Dior shoe and on the right is the Jeffrey Campbell/Nasty Gal iteration. Let me know what you think of this latest version of designer vs high street.
