Catwalk copies are a big thing in the fashion industry - sometimes the high street plays it pretty close to the line when translating key trends. But then there's the matter of designer brands doing the same.
Trainer brand New Balance is suing Karl Lagerfeld for ripping off the classic New Balance design and as much as we love Chanel's creative director, this is close to the bone. Seriously, check out the likeness.
Lagerfeld's lace-up pair, complete with patent-leather, suede and white "K" motif will set you back a modest £250, while you can pick up New Balance kicks for just £84.99.
Karl, you're too good for this. It's ok to tap into the fashion trainers trend (the glitter embellished styles a la the Chanel Paris Couture Spring/Summer 2014 catwalk were every girl's dream), but knocking off another brand is just not cool.
