A few months after Chanel's spring '14 art-show presentation, The Fashion Law has raised the point about how the Pantone colors of Karl Lagerfeld's designs seem very comparable to those used in Scott's collection back in fall '12. And, admittedly, the similarities are quite apparent. The rainbow of color chips used in Scott's RTW collection as well as in his designer collaboration pieces is echoed in those of the Chanel patterns splashed across the French fashion house's dresses. Lagerfeld's use and execution of the blocked print is, however, considerably different from the American designer's. But, though both designers favored a rainbow pattern, is that enough to call it copying? Click on for more comparison examples, and let us know if you find these chip hues too close for comfort.
