Karl Lagerfeld in Hot Water Over Alleged New Balance Copy

Fashion Drama-Sneaker company New Balance is taking action against Karl Lagerfeld after he released a shoe that looks extremely similar to their classic design. The biggest difference between the two shoes being the letter “N” on the New Balance and a “K” on Lagerfeld’s version. New Balance was made aware of the comparison after a shopping website called She Finds made note of it. As of yet it is unclear if Lagerfeld, the head designer and creative director for Chanel, purposefully knocked off the design or if it was an unintentional move on his part.

    Despite the controversy, but we adore the Karl Lagerfeld kick! It may be a slight twist on an original, but isn’t it the ultimate form of flattery?
