Raf Simons or Velour (Sweden)?

Well, what do you know? It’s not just Forever 21 copying Anna Sui. Swedish brand Velour (Spring 2008) seems to be "inspired" by Raf Simons’ Fall/Winter 2003 collection. Who did it best?

Raf Simons Fall/Winter 2003 and Velour Spring/Summer 2008

Or better yet, which one is Raf and which one is Velour? Optical illusions, anyone? I don’t know about you but I like them both. Not that I’d wear menswear, but still.. Hah!

Answers on a postcard…


  1. it can also be that they both copied another(3rd party)designer. didn’t u read Fashion Babylon and how all the designers go to vintage shops, buy old designer wares and just change the tag inside.
    so they really shouldn’t be all that mad about imitation because they’ve all done it in varying degrees in their lifetime.

  2. omg I totally LOVE velour, it’s so simple and minimalistic! I bought the grey felt jacket and i L.OV.E it. Didn’t know it was known lol thanks bb

  3. they both copied someone else: that picture on the sweater is from a Bauhaus compilation CD. i had that cd when i was in high school years ago and would draw that same thing on notebooks.
    the way its shown on the sweater makes it look only like geometric designs but if u look closely its actually a face.
