{lux for less} Cartonnier does Givenchy @ Anthro...

Last night I was devouring the June issue of Elle, taking in the highlights for the Fall season and reading about how hard it is for Kristen Stewart to be famous, when I nearly chocked on the dark chocolate I was mindlessly nibbling - "Is that seriously an Anthropologie jacket in a high fashion spread for Elle???" I nearly said aloud. Upon examination of the small print, I learned that it is actually a piece by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy, priced at $1,620. People - they look exactly the same (save for a leather band on each shoulder and a more dramatic shoulder. Now, that's sort of poor form by Cartonnier (I don't usually condone direct knock-offs) but it's a great look and a great price ($98!) - and that's hard to resist.
