Okay, so usually I think it’s okay for brands to move ideas on and find inspiration in schemes which they admire. When Storewindows (a must have follow for anyone on twitter) posted a pic of a Dior scheme recently, It really bugged me as I was sure I had seen this scheme before. Unfortunately my harddrive was broken and after numerous attempts to try and find it online I gave up. (maybe I was just dreaming?) But I have just managed to fix my harddrive and looking through my pictures from LA I discovered that infact I wasn’t dreaming, I had seen this identical scheme at Armani last sept 2010. So what do you guys think? Is it okay that Dior have taken inspiration from the scheme? I even wondered if they might be the same exact props? Maybe brands are now trying to cut down on expenses and borrowing from each other?
I leave you with Exhibit A. Armani shot in LA 2010 (don’t laugh at my legs in the reflection haha) and Exhibit B. Shot by Julia of Modelizing in New York 2011.
