Each season, there are one or two runway collections that seem to get knocked off everywhere from Zara to Asos and beyond. There were the bananas and stripes imitations from Prada's spring 2011 collection, the molded crop tops and asymmetrical skirts "inspired" by Nicholas Ghesquiere's last collection for Balenciaga, the plaids borrowed from Céline's fall 2013 runway.
Christopher Kane's flora theme is fast emerging as the collection to beat (be?) for this spring . His unique, scientific take on a florals is inspiring all the high-street designers, including Pixie Market.
Retailing for $65, its "Yellow Botanical Flower Dress" isn't a direct knock off, per se, but there's no mistaking the sunny-hued inspiration source. The pattern may not be 3D on the dress, but it's still a near-direct copy of the pattern on Kane's skirt.
Kane's thrilled, we're sure.
