Adventures in Copyright: Miu Miu vs. La Diva

A wise reader e-mailed us this AIC, and we're shocked to see the similarities between the Miu Miu AW09 handbag ad at left and the ad for a handbag line called La Diva at right. Not only are the two bags extremely alike, but the ad itself is styled completely after the Miu Miu ad. From the whitewashed, peachy palette, to the model's indifferent touch of the face. All we have to say is, seriously?

Copying a Miu Miu ad is pretty obvious, since its branding is always unique. Plus we don't really get the same, young, fresh, ingenue vibe, which is Miu Miu's goal, from the image of the model for La Diva, who is styled to look way older and exponentially less fresh.

Plus, we'd expect something a little more flashy from a handbag line called La Diva. If there was ever a time for rhinestones and rainbows, we think a line called La Diva is it.
