Topshop Creates Givenchy Runway Jewelry Lookalike

After a four months’ wait, Topshop has come out with a lookalike multi strand chain necklace (with trademark charms of course) to give with Givenchy’s fans with less of a budget than $2k something to claw for.  This piece isn’t gold (the metal isn’t even identified; we’re only given “metal fiber”), but at savings of $1,915 I suppose we shouldn’t complain too loudly.

And They’ve Done It Again

Topshop has gone and gotten “inspired” by American Apparel once again. Instead of bicycle shorts this time, it’s the leggings that made metallic lamé catch on to what it is today.

Topshop is hawking their version (on the left) for $36; while AA’s original is still selling for $46. It’s been a few years since the lamé insanity began; and from what I’ve seen it’s winding down from it’s turn on the hipster popularity podium.

My question is this: does anyone out there still care about lamé?


AMAP And Topshop Have Me Seeing Double

OK, I’m an advocate of shiny clothing as much as the next person, but come on. Does the world have so much demand for lamé bicycle shorts that Topshop felt duty bound to create a version of their own? Honestly, now!

Aside from the leg appearing longer and the Topshop clones costing $4 lesser than their American Apparel counterparts, there seems to be no difference at all. That much gold lamé could have found a much better use elsewhere.
