Wolford has come up with something similar, wouldn't call it a rip-off but still clearly inspired.

yes definitely inspired by chanel i'm sure...

i wish they would do a more literal version though

the urban pair is fun to wear (i wore them for the first time yesterday with a short dress with sequin designs and blk suede round toe pumps) and got a lot of compliments on them...
BUT the quality could be much better...
i already noticed a couple little holes/snags on the sheer part...

i actually would love it if Hue came up with an imitation.. then we could all get a good quality pair of tights for a price that won't break the bank

I'm to report on the quality of the hose, - remeber I order them from e-bay - the chance is that they are not real. The box doesn't say Chanel anyweare, they are made in Italy!?!,they are thick, but it terms of rough, lycra is not enough... I bit loose in the feet, simply I can not imagine Chanel producing those. I paid the Chanel price...

^OMG I am sorry to hear that aris! I hope you can have them verified in a Chanel shop.

Who was the seller if I may ask?

well, I'm not 100 % sure they are fake, but for example this seller has the box
http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-CHANEL-TWO-T...3A1%7C294%3A50

mine were just in white box, the composition of material /95% nylon, 5% elastane / is the as the one described in the above link, but to me it feels like one of these old tights that didn't have elastane.

any way the seller claims that they are Authentic.
I'll post latter the name of the seller.

The wolford ones are around 30 pounds. They're very similar to the UO ones. I still want the Chanel ones.
