dupli-Caught: Topshop vrs Alexander McQueen

Ever since I saw McQueen's Spring 2009 collection, bones as a trend have been embedded in my mind. Topshop seems to agree and they look like they've been more than just a little inspired by Alexander McQueen.

While the original is probably well over a thousand, this Topshop zip front dress/tunic is a mere $55. The bone pattern is not nearly as elaborate as McQueen's version which seems to contour the body in a flattering manner, while the Topshop version was pretty much just slapped on the item. Important to note that Topshop did change one thing, they changed the print to be in other colorways including pink and yellow.

While a trend is a trend, I think this print is a little too close for comfort.
