Nicolas Ghesquiere has done it again. In his latest cruise collection there is a sharp looking leather jacket with a nice cut-out cuff detail.
Well the bastard copied it.

It just irks me that someone who's universally praised for originality does this. There's nothing wrong with referencing something, that's common. But blatant copying such as this where it looks nearly identical is not referencing, it's just fucking lazy.
I saw so much of that shit when I was at school. Hell, we even had a class on how to copy a garment as we were told by our pattern-making teacher "look, you'll end up having to do this eventually when you get a job".
