Fashion designer, artist, and DJ Kesh recently posted an image to her Instagram account which shows a Versace shirt currently on sale at Selfridges (left in above image) and a shirt she designed for American Apparel (right in above image). The resemblance between the two shirts is undeniable, but that’s where the similarities end — the Versace version will set you back about $650.00 while the American Apparel version is going for $50.00.
Kesh commented “at least make it better than the $30 original @versace_official. this looks like a first draft.”
“A friend sent an image of it to my phone,” Kesh tells the Cut. “I woke up to it this morning thinking it was another cheap Chinese rip off. Then I saw the £440 price tag and that it was on the Selfridges website.”
No word yet from Versace.
