Hands Off!

THE ORIGINAL: Comme des Garcons Fall 2007


THE COPYCATS:

1. CATHERINE MALANDRINO: Note the double hands around the waist:


...And one creepy arm on the top:


2. RICHARD NICOLL: It's hard to tell from this small photo, but hands make up the design on this shirt:


...And feature as trompe d'oeil details on this jacket:


Anybody else think this is blatant copying?

yes i think that is blatant copying. but i think that's the newest trend now. copy, copy and copy. too bad though when you've spent months thinking about an idea or concept.

and ps, my shoes are from donna karan collection.

Well, at least it's changed up a bit and doesn't look EXACTLY the same, unlike those Payless shoes that rip off Rodarte.

Uncanny--I've been thinking about hands on clothes from a slightly different perspective. Now I'll have to do a mini post on it . . .

hmmm... you really think so? Hands aren't exactly a new concept...

Nonetheless it is a shame how much copying there is going on in general.
