Yaeger to Anthropologie: Get Real
In this week's Voice, an H&M-clad Lynn Yaeger takes on the philosophical/moral question of copying in fashion. Anthropologie, a brand that specializes in Marni- and Marc Jacobs-esque designs, is suing Forever 21 for copying. Anna Sui, who has remade looks by designers from the 60s and 70s, is suing too, and she's even pissed enough to have produced the T-shirt worn by the model above, which shows Forever 21's owners. It's all so silly, and hearing these designers whine about Forever 21 is a great mix of infuriating and amusing. Thankfully, Yaeger puts it in perspective, and them in their place.
