Alexander Wang vs. Topshop


There’s no shame in Topshop game. This is the second time they have been “inspired by” a piece from Alexander Wang Spring 2009 collection.

Topshop called their dress the Voodoo mesh corded tunic, I call it the De ja vu mesh tunic.

Topshop have shorten the sleeves in a bid to go undetected, but the mesh tunic and corded details are too similar to not see the clear inspiration.

Topshop sell theirs for £45, whilst the original sold out within minutes on Net-A-Porter for £680.

    WTF they picked a ugly dress to copy, and putting the price up is shocking.

    i have lots all faith in topshop, i know that sounds dramatic but seriously they used to be cheap but great value.

    I love the Topshop version much more than the Wang.
