On the blackboard for today: Chloé, left. Forever 21, right. Lesson 1: Where there is an innovative, appealing design, there's a Forever 21 copy in the making. Lesson 2: White patent leather has a tendancy to look cheap, especially when it actually is. Lesson 3: Colors are important. See the muted, darker F21 pink with significantly less zest than the Chloé original for illustration. Lesson 4: Releasing a knock-off when the original is on sale for 40% off on Net-a-Porter is none too wise. -- HAYLEY PHELAN
