Jimmy Choo Malika (sold out)
Apparently the saying goes that “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. As an artist and designer, I hate when my ideas are copied or claimed original by someone else. On the other hand, taking inspiration is a great idea because it can be a starting point for brainstorming something new. I love when brands decide to take inspiration from high-end fashion without making it a direct copy of the original design. The perforated sandal from Victoria’s Secret is a perfect example of taking inspiration from an existing style, yet turning into something completely different. I personally like the sandal from VS better than the Malika because the detail is lighter and less industrial.
