Anyone who has traipsed—and by traipsed, we mean shoved their way through a herd of slow-moving tourists—down Canal Street has seen enough Chanel knockoffs to last a lifetime. But, hey, what's a few more? And though they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, something tells us that the good folks at the Double C Ranch may not be all that amused by these backhanded logo liberties. Indeed, this round of knock offs includes some rip offs of previous copyright-busting designs. It's so meta that we're getting dizzy. Call in the lawyers!
Above, clockwise from upper left:
This Laniebeth Dripping Dead Chanel necklace was modeled after an Alex + Chloe design that doesn't appear to be available any more (pictured, lower left), which actually sort of makes it a knockoff of a knockoff. Whatevs—we kinda dig the "I'm meltiiiing!" effect.
This Chanel Crossbones Pendant Necklace from A Vanity Affair, another take on yet another Alex + Chloe design, would be a lot more threatening and macabre if it didn't come in a psychedelic rainbow print.
