    Karl keeps aiming at younger and younger audiences, it seems. Kids are the new teenagers.

    I did a search of the previous thread and didn't see it posted so I hope I am double posting.

    We all know where the original idea came from but thought it was worth the post.

    ^Mcqueen also did that twist detail for Givenchy and then Olivier Rousteing for Balmain, which was ripped off from Mcqueen's design, literally

    Well, one of the boots look significantly more well made... This is why I can never find shoes on the highstreet - there is always something "off" with them in terms of quality, proportions etc...

    About Celine and Capucci, its true that colour and silhouette are "same" but the pattern and the construction is completely different.

    And same with the CDG.

    Thats the great thing about Philo, nothing is literal, you can see they have spent time thinking about it, working on the garment (even the Geoffrey Beene coat).

    In fact, the coat on Saskia is quite complicated, I can't wait to have a closer look on the store, Its always a pleasure to see Phoebe's solutions in person.

    ^ Mmmmmm, but that doesn't really change the fact that she and her team have, on more than one occasion, sent looks out on the runway which bear quite a similarity to vintage pieces which already exist, and that the similarities/references aren't very hard to suss out. That does point to a certain level of literalness. Even with the twisted cutout coat, one could go so far as to argue that Olivier Rousteing's reworking of the McQueen/Givenchy jacket a year or so ago put that very same detail on Philo's radar.

    Other equally famous designers have had their ethics and creativity called into question for the exact same thing that Philo seems to do fairly regularly.

    About the capucci dress.. patterns are completely different??????? Both are jersey cape dresses, let's put a gathering in the front and make it short sleeve instead because oh well, its summer. Does that make them absolutely different? I bet they are constructed the same. Sadly, we won't be able to find out easily because you cannot find many things from Capucci nowadays.

    It could be also highly possible that they even bought the original dress, took the patterns directly. That's what brands do nowadays (yes, even the cool ones)

    Celine succeeds cause yeah, its cool and looks cool and of course they know how to style even the ugliest dress and make it work. but that doesnt mean they don't work as everybody else and doing these kind of things is a bit of a shame being who they are

    Or laziness?

    This balenciaga collection looked like a vetements one....

    I'm guessing you'd rather buy balenciaga as it costs less and at this point looks the same
    Won't last long..

    Elgaro, from the picture you posted I can see the Capucci dress, is a cape and a dress, MAY BE joined on the neckline, while Celine's dress is one piece, the cape actually comes from the skirt...soooo the patterns are quite different.

    And Spike, my point is that celine looks may bear resemblance to other designers, but when you see the insights ( and here is where it comes all the job, all the trial and error etc.) they are another world.

    I never saw that Balmain jacket you mentioned live, so I cant really tell if its the same case as Celine.

    There's another shot, from Dazed Magazine 2003 where you can see they are a single piece as in the Celine one
