^^ I see a Real similarity.

The colour is exactly the same, the black overlay obviously but also the shapes around the centre of the dress with the mirrored effect. It just looks like a cheap knockoff.

I prefer the Roksanda version all the same; much cleaner. But the sihouette's are basically the same.

I KNEW IT!!!!

and lol.. not even couple hours and Gucci is already here... oh well...

I have to agree Balenciaga FW07 also came up to my mind while watching the show but because there was similar inspiration between those two collections.. 20s hipless dresses with art deco prints, straps at the bottom and golden applique... each designer made their own interpretation since the construction of dresses is completely different... overall Fall Winter 2007 season was full of ethnic, safari and art deco influence at certain collections....
when i saw the gucci prints (i said prints, not construction of dresses, prints, dont stone me!) it immediately reminded me of another FW07 collection of Cavalli.... same inspiration, different interpretation...

ArtManiac19, thank you so much for clarifying that Givenchy did not invent the concept!

I don't see a slight resemblance with the Cavalli & Gucci.

Different interpretation indeed, even print-wise I don't see any similarities either.

I know these aren't that similar, but I still get the same vibes.

Gucci SS12 & Prada SS11

****Edited****
I didnt say Gucci copied Cavalli.... I said they BOTH used same references in their collection such as Art Deco..... just like Balenciaga fw07 used same reference as gucci ss12....
Cavalli dresses are completely different from Gucci (what I said before) just like those Balenciaga ones... you cannot even compare those 2 collections since one is F/W and second one is S/S..... you'd have to literally rip the sleeves off the Cavalli dresses first since they are for autumn...
and great post GivenchyHomme... thats what im talking about... the dresses dont look alike... but they are different versions of Poiret 20s hipless dress... therefore when people watch gucci ss12, this dress might come up to the mind just because it has the same inspiration...
all i said i repeat all I said was that Gucci had the same influence (Art Deco, 20s dresses with straps at the bottom, graphic prints, black-white-gold colors) as some FW07 collections... therefore they can come up to peoples mind while watchin Gucci SS12 like that Balenciaga FW07 dresses even though they arent similar at all...
Therefore SAME inspiration but DIFFERENT interpretation... thats what fashion is all about... taking something that was already done and reinvent it and make it fresh and modern... ****Edited****
