I do so love it when an affordable brand takes a trend and re-interprets it for the masses, rather than producing a direct knockoff. Extrapolation on an idea is always fun, and I love to see thoughts flow in a new direction. What would also be cool with these chain earrings available at Macy’s would be if the designers had explored perhaps different color combinations than just black-and-gold, which strongly evoke the Chanel version. (Or maybe it’s just the pieces that were chosen for the ad, and there are a ton of other variations available in-store.)
What do you guys think?
Too much alike, or just hitting that right spot?
