When I was browsing in Nordstrom the other day I noticed the Milly top above. Its a dead ringer (though different pattern) than a classic Mayle top from fall 2004 (you know the one the bib front, banded sleeves, the belt detail and key hole neckline?).
It got me wondering as to whom else would start to replicate old Mayle pieces? To a super fan like me - I noticed immediately and honestly it made me not want to buy anything from Milly in the future. Obviously all designers are inspired by other designers or vintage pieces. I mean the original top itself was inspired by a top that Jane wore all the time but it doesn't make me want to buy the sad knock off (at $250).
