Get The Look
Public Desire Boots
I am massively conflicted. On the one hand, I feel that as someone who has such a big love and respect for fashion, and works in the fashion industry, I shouldn't embrace designer 'inspired' pieces. I say 'inspired' because, let's be real, some pieces are straight copies, such as these 'yeezus inspired' boots. Ain't nothing inspired here.
On the other hand, where would we be without 'inspired' pieces? Isn't that pretty much what Zara's entire concept rides on? I walk around Zara and play a fun game called 'spot the designer'. Trust me, there's never a dull moment. Balenciaga here, Proenza there, Chloé on top shelf. Even top luxury designers draw inspiration from each other.
Where is the line drawn though? I actually felt a sense of guilt wearing these boots. I feel that Yeezy's collections are massively overpriced but these boots really aren't the best quality. So I wonder whether I should be buying into them. If they said 'Yeezy' on them, I would never buy them. I don't do designer copies, I snob them hard. But at the end of the day, is there really a big difference?
I'm not one of those people who turns my nose up at fast fashion. You've got to cut your coat according to your cloth. But, is the line drawn before boots like these?
Let's talk about it. Be real with me.
