Well, we all know that high street retailers like Zara are largely inspired by high fashion. This inspiration is sometimes so dominant that its hard not to call it copying. However, what I saw on mytheresa while browsing todays new arrivals shocked me!!!!
A beautiful goat leather lace up boot immediately caught my eye. I thought how beautiful the top stitching a little reminiscent of a pumps looks. I thought how well Hedi has melted the pumps he showed on the runway with an ankle boot. But stop!!!! The label read Miu Miu – This shoe isn’t Saint Laurent Cat Boot? Ok both are beautiful. The cat boot comes in patent leather, silver, leo, python at Montaigne Market or with crystals, making it a great piece for the evening. The goat leather Miu Miu has beautiful detailing and seems great for day. However, who was first and who was heavily inspired?
