I promised you there would be more because there’s no way Lindsay Lohan would deliver this 6126 line in silence. She always has drama dangling onto her ankles. Only days after the sketches were released rumors escalated, accusing Lohan of snatching ideas from other designers.
James Lillis design on left looks pretty similar to Lohan's newly released sketch
James Lillis of Black Milk Clothing commented on the coincidental similarity between Lohan’s “Diamond” leggings and his “Sheer Spartans.” The obvious geometric resemblance is the mid-thigh triangular cutout.
“Caught a sneak peek at the new stuff from Lindsay Lohan’s brand 6126…No way…Sucks to be me!!!” Lillis wrote on his blog, toomanytights.typepad.com.
Jen Kao's design on the left and Lohan's sketch on the right
Another accusation came from fashionista.com when comparisons between Lohan’s “Deserve” dress and a design from Jen Kao’s spring collection raised eyebrows. Lohan even wore Kao’s dress last year! Every line of the sketch doesn’t exactly match the actual dress, but it’s way too close when you put the magnifying glass down and take a step back.
“While we are all well aware that being ‘mimicked’ or ‘copied’ has always existed in this industry, I think the evolution of it all has grown to an alarming level,” Koa said. “It’s a shame to support the concept of taking advantage of designers who are still trying to develop a name and solidify the image of their design aesthetic.”
Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay shame on you! First you get a low grade by me on the overall exam, and now you’re accused of copying! This means suspension for you missy. You’re suspended from the fashion world for hmm let’s say 10 years.
I mean all of the sketches looked like something I could buy at a cheap store. The fact that she couldn’t think out of the box for just a couple extra minutes to come up with other designs is pathetic.
Here comes Lohan’s team to the rescue!
Kristi Kaylor, president of 6126, said “The alleged ‘copying’ claims made by these companies are false and have absolutely no merit or validity whatsoever. Any alleged similarities are purely coincidental. The 6126 illustrations for the upcoming fall 2010 collections do not even describe the fabric content, fit or actual construction details of the garments. This is merely an accusation based upon a pencil sketch with no concrete viable evidence to back up the allegations.”
Hopefully this teaches us all a lesson. Unfortunately I’m sure Lohan didn’t learn a thing.
