We recently received a tip from a sharp-eyed reader who stumbled upon Miu Miu’s Spring 2013 eyewear campaign and thought the shades featured looked familiar–a little too familiar.
Turns out that CFDA Incubator designer Grey Ant has a near-identical pair for sale called Wax #4–and those were originally released in 2011. Sure, it could be just a coincidence… but as our tipster points out, with fans like Kristen McMenamy and Linda Evangelista, as well as the CFDA’s recognition, Grey Ant isn’t exactly flying under the radar.
We reached out to Miu Miu, who declined to comment on the issue, so check out the two sunglasses for yourself and see if you find any shade-y business going on. What’s your take?
