We all know fashion repeats itself, but one blogger has found something a bit more problematic. “Humor Chic,” an Italian satirical fashion blog, is accusing Raf Simons of Christian Dior, Miuccia Prada of Prada and Phoebe Philo of Céline, of ripping off designs from vintage designs/sketches. And the visual evidence is quite convincing.
The creator and illustrator of the site, aleXsandro Palombo, created the “No Fakes” campaign to “protect fashion designers from copycats.” The long-time illustrator compares their work to Edith Head, André Courrèges and Geoffrey Beene. And the corresponding cartoons depict the active designers as rats, being caught while stealing the others designs.
No bueno. Rather this is the highest form of hate-ration, or Palombo has uncovered an real issue.
