We felt insanely cool for scoring a Proenza Schouler corset at a thrift shop this summer, but apparently, we weren't that special: Forever 21 also scored a Proenza Schouler corset, just like the ones Jack and Lazaro made for Target in February. They switched a color from white to black, added a little more room in the cups, and turned up the shine factor on the fabric so it went from Cavalli-shiny to Cavalli-for-H&M shiny. Then they priced it at $22.80 - a whopping $10 lower than Proenza's price at Target - and rolled it out onto their floor. It's a serious case of fashion deja vu, but if Forever 21 was going to knock off Proenza, we wish they'd been a little more literal - that black-and-purple color story zooms us straight back to Shira: Princess of Power.
