Adventures in Copyright: Stealing Stripes

Thakoon's prints are dear to any fashion lover's heart - so it took about a half a second for Teen Vogue super intern Elana to spot these Lauren Moffat rip-offs at Barneys this morning. The co-op brand took the navy, forest green and white striped pattern from Thakoon's Spring Summer 08 collection and threw them on a couple of different pieces including a billowy dress and knee-length skirt. Everything about the prints are the same from the varying width of the stripes to the color blocking - as Elana so eloquently put it, "holy Thakoon rip-off, Batman!" Did Lauren wait a few seasons hoping no one would notice?
