dupli-CAUGHT: Topshop vrs Dries Van Noten


Remember back in October when I was raving about Dries Van Noten's lust worthy statement jewelry for Spring 09? Well guess it was only a matter of time before the Mass market steped in with their "interpretation". I stopped by Topshop and discovered that obviously someone "designing for them" felt the same way. The Topshop version costs $40 and is conveniently left off their website and instead of the ingenious rows of rings, left in their stead was rows of plastic beads strung on elastic. There may be slight differences but the inspiration is pretty clear.

The entire point of topshop is to knock everyone off. Did you not notice the A. Wang triangle back blazer in the front of the store? A mere 130 from the 800 dollar price tag and so identical it would be impossible to tell them apart.

Holy---that is a pretty dead on knockoff, but $40 still isn't cheap. It looks really heavy!
