Crazy, right? They are basically identical. We agree with Fashionista's sentiment that it's just highly unlikely that this is a coincidence. What we can't say for sure is whether the folks at J.W. Anderson found the inspiration from Bryanboy's site, or if they too found one of these old-school J. Crew sweaters at a vintage spot in Paris.
While Bryanboy didn't design this sweater, this situation sort of reminds us of Topshop copying blogger and jewelry designer Wendy Brandes' set of rings, as well as that whole Seventeen and Rookie Mag debacle.
It's clear that bloggers' influence on the greater fashion and media landscape is becoming more and more visible, and not always in the right way.
What do you think of these larger companies taking (very literal) inspiration from bloggers? Has a line been crossed? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
