Luxe Or Less: Colourful Chanel Ballet Flats
In this case, the question "Who copied whom?" is like asking which came first, the chicken or the egg. Ballet flats are traditionally dance shoes, so it's not like Chanel can take the credit for that innovation. By the same token, it would make sense for a dance shoe manufacturer like Bloch to come out with streetwear ballet flats. However, who came up with the idea of a fluorescent two-tone flat first? Bloch's purple-and-black number bears an uncanny resemblance to Chanel's hot pink-and-black flat. These colours are spunky and will definitely get you noticed, but I think I prefer Bloch's navy and yellow versions with white accents more.
