Raf Simons, Miuccia Prada: Unoriginal Designers?
Raf Simons and Miucci Prada are two of the most celebrated designers in the industry. Their designs are revered and loved by many, with Prada even having a Costume Institute exhibit honoring her designs.
However, are the two really as innovative and creative as you thought? The satirical blog, Humor Chic, has recently made it their mission to call out "blatant designer rip-offs," and it seems like the blog’s illustrator aleXsandro Palombo may be on to something.
Palombo’s campaign, which is called “No Fakes” features images of recent Dior, Prada and Celine runway looks alongside historic designs that he feels were ripped off.
For example, a Phoebe Philo design for Celine that resembles a Geoffrey Beene coat and a Raf Simons design for Dior that closely resembles a garment once designed by Edith Head. Miuccia Prada seems to have several designs that are similar to that of Andre Courreges’ designs.
