Birdy pick of the week: luxe vs less
What do you think of high street knock-offs? Is it fair game? Or is it just something that we take for granted these days? I have to confess that I love a good ‘luxe vs less’ magazine feature, but I draw the line at high-street chains pinching the work of small independent designers. Does that make me a hypocrite?
Anyway, I stumbled across these two frocks quite independently of each other, and I was going to run them as separate birdy finds. But side-by-side, you can see the extraordinary similarities. Over to you – what do you think? Would you be tempted to buy the Oasis version?
