COPYFIGHT: Rodarte For Mens Rips Off Junya Wantanabe

A watchful fashionizer has noticed that Rodarte’s new mens collection looks surprisingly similar to Junya Wantanabe’s mens runway collection from Fall 2006. Take a look for yourself and be the judge.

Here’s the original comment taken from Opening Ceremony’s blog:

I’m gagging at these prices!!! I do love how Rodarte has been able to take the same knit Junya Watanabe did for *Fall 2006, repackage it and sell it for thousands of dollars(a semester’s tuition btw). I’ll be looking on etsy for a knockoff of the knockoff.

ps: making the same dress every season can only get you so far.

I personally see a similarity, but prefer the Junya version for keeping a manly edge. The Rodarte Mens collection looks too indiscernible and can go both ways, which isn’t the message most boys want to portray, but fuck it, it’s fashion.
