How wonderful is this jacket? Wow!
Exactly what I thought of when I saw the runway.

Incredible! And they always blame the Chinese for knock-offs… if this was even another color… but same material, same shade! Boooo!
Oops….and even more most embarrassing when it comes out…

Because Beene decided to fold the sleeves, that’s going to be copyrighted and a violation of design? Because the image that was photographed, at that moment, had the sleeves tied? Or am I missing something and it functions somehow? As fashion’s past, the past and future references its history to enable a new future. With Philo’s design, atleast the folded arms have a dual function, given they allow the wearer to tuck both arms into the sleeves.
you bitches are stupid! give it a rest like its the first time its ever been done! credit where credit is due! one day you will all be paying homage to me! but i wont complain if u copy!
GLAD I FOUND THIS SITE VIA WWD–AMAZINGLY EXACT COPY, EXCEPT FOR THE UNDERARM SLITS ON THE CELINE VERSION! I USED TO DESIGN FOR GB, AND HIS COAT WAS PHOTOGRAPHED WITH THE SLEEVES TIED SIMPLY TO ILLUSTRATE HOW LIGHTWEIGHT THE DOUBLE-FACE WOOL WAS, A BIG ISSUE FOR HIM–HE LOVED TAKING AWAY AS MUCH CONSTRUCTION POSSIBLE OUT OF EVERYTHING–ONE SEAM IDEAS FASCINATED HIM!
THE CELINE IDEA OF WEARING IT WITH SLEEVES TIED PROBABLY WOULD NOT HAVE GONE OVER FOR HIM–I IMAGINE HE’D HAVE FOUND IT A BIT ODD/AWKWARD, BUT WHO KNOWS? IN ANY CASE, LET’S JUST SAY PHOEBE PAID HOMAGE TO A GREAT AMERICAN DESIGNER (BUT I PERSONALLY WOULD HAVE CHANGED IT UP A BIT!)!

I don’t think it is a copy. We should call it inspiration. According to the photo of GB jacket, the sleeves were tied to create a photographic positon. Celine house must have seen that photo, then they transfromed the jacket into a poncho. The idea of keeping the fake sleeves at the front is amazing :) . I love both designs.

Get a life folks. (Just kidding ’cause here I am commenting on this, too.) The Beene coat is lovely. The Celine coat pays homage to it, but ups the functionality with two ways to wear it, although it’s a bit bulky. Is this really a problem?
